TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) -- Possibly the most amazing statistic from Washburn University's 63-7 win over Missouri Southern on Saturday was the fact that the Ichabods didn't punt once.

The nine-touchdown game set a school record for the largest Homecoming win in school history, and Washburn also set a school record for first downs in a game with 36.

The Ichabods outgained the Lions 570 yards to 182 yards: 264 yards to 95 yards on the ground and 306 yards to 87 yards through the air.

Quarterback Mitch Schurig led the signal callers going 15 of 19 for 224 yards and one touchdown. Ian Trapp saw time, as well, finishing 6 of 7 for 82 yards and one touchdown.

Wide receiver James Brania-Hopp led the team in receiving yards with 93 on six catches and a touchdown, followed by Will Hamilton with four catches for 65 yards.

On the ground, Hunter Browning led the Bods with 11 carries for 53 yards, followed closely by Kamani Addison with 11 carries for 52 yards.

Washburn's defense held the Lions to 1 of 13 on third down conversions, and was led in tackles by Derrick McGreevy with six. Garrett Barnett-Kruger racked up five tackles, as well.

The Ichabods travel to the University of Central Oklahoma next Saturday to take on the Bronchos at 2 p.m.
