Central Washington sets scoring record
Central Washington set an NCAA scoring record with 27 points in 79 seconds in a lopsided win over Western Oregon last weekend.
The NCAA statistical service confirmed Tuesday that the Division II Wildcats' scoring blitz was a record for all NCAA divisions.
Central Washington's onslaught began in the second quarter. Mike Reilly threw a touchdown pass to Nate Brookreson, and two plays later cornerback Brandon Kennedy returned an interception 36 yards for another score.
On the second play of the next drive, Josh Chance scooped up a fumble and returned it 12 yards for a score, and Kennedy closed the scoring surge by returning another interception for a score.
The Wildcats won the game 61-33.
