Central State became the first college football team since 1980 to break the 100-point mark with a 101-0 victory over Lane, which conceded the game with 11 minutes 26 seconds to play on Saturday.

Central State (7-2) also scored 101 points in a game in 1947. The Marauders were six points short of the National Assn. of Intercollegiate Athletics single-game scoring record, set by Fort Valley, Ga., in 1969.

Houston, which routed Tulsa, 100-6, in 1968, was the last major-college team to score 100 points. Portland State, a National Collegiate Athletic Assn. Division-II team, scored 105 against Delaware State in 1980.


Henderson Mosley led Central State, ranked No. 2 in the NAIA Division-I poll, by completing 15 of 25 passes for 275 yards and six touchdowns. He also ran for three touchdowns. James Hicks and Eddie Britton each caught two touchdown passes.

Central State had 508 yards on offense and held Lane (1-6-1) to 37 yards. Lane lost three fumbles and had three passes intercepted, one of which was returned for a touchdown.

Central State has an enrollment of 2,670. Lane, an NCAA Division-III school, has 800 students.
