By ANDY WOLF
STAFF WRITER
Hopes of a second consecutive shutout for the University of Findlay defense flew out the window early in last Saturday’s 47-3 victory over Walsh.

Surpassing 400 total yards of offense is normally a pretty good day at the office.
Outgaining an opponent by 400-plus yards by halftime?
Flat-out dominating.
The University of Findlay football team did just that to Tuskegee, 487-78, scoring 55 points in the first half of a 61-0 nonleague victory Saturday at Donnell Stadium.
