New starting quarterback? No problem. Just hand the ball off to #26. Sophomore running back Evan Hull exploded for two touchdowns on consecutive drives. The first one was a 17 yard scamper, giving the 'Cats a 7-0 lead, and then finding pay dirt once more, with an explosive 90 yard touchdown run, going up 14-0.
Still a long way to go in this game, but Coach Fitz has to be happy with what he sees from Hull and the offense. The more success the ground game has, the easier it will be for starting quarterback Ryan Hilinksi to find his groove, as he can lean on Hull.
