University of Mary 14
DULUTH, Minn. -- Chase Vogler’s remarkable collegiate career may be slowly coming to an end, but the University of Minnesota-Duluth senior quarterback showed Saturday afternoon that he still has plenty left in the old tank.
Vogler, making his 50th career start, passed for three touchdowns and ran for another score in propelling the ninth-ranked Bulldogs past the University of Mary 55-14 at James S. Malosky Stadium. UMD, now 9-1 overall, bolted to a 31-7 halftime lead while cruising to its 39th consecutive NSIC home triumph, a run which stretches back to the the 2000 season, and improving to 6-0 all-time versus the Maruaders (4-6).
The Bulldogs rolled up 564 yards of total offense on the afternoon, including 270 on the ground, and limited Mary to 251 overall yards.
