VALPARAISO, IN (11/02/2013) Senior running backs Joe Ferguson and Kenn James rushed for over 100 yards each to help the USD Toreros (6-3, 5-1 PFL) roll pass Valparaiso (1-8, 15 PFL) 58-14 Saturday morning.
Senior quarterback Mason Mills led the passing attack completing 19 out of 32 passes for 230 yards and four touchdowns.
