RUSTON, La. (AP) — Louisiana Tech amassed 839 yards in total offense en route to a 70-28 victory against Idaho Saturday night.
Kenneth Dixon rushed for 232 yards and six touchdowns for the Bulldogs (6-1, 1-0 Western Athletic Conference), and Colby Cameron was 29 of 37 for 400 yards and two touchdowns passing. Myles White caught six passes for 100 yards and a score.
Dixon’s six TDs broke Arry Moody’s 36-year-old single-game record of five set against Northeast Louisiana in 1976. He has rushed for 16 TDs this season.
The 839 yards also were a single-game school record and the most by a Football Bowl Subdivision team this season.
Louisiana Tech led 56-21 at the half — the 56 points tied a WAC single-game record — and did not score in the fourth quarter.
The Vandals (1-7, 1-2) managed a touchdown in the final period on Dominique Blackmon’s 1-yard pass to Michael LaGrone.
