Quarterback Teejay Gordon tied a school record for completions (21), throwing for 260 yards and three touchdowns to lead the College of Idaho to a 38-17 win over Rocky Mountain on Saturday at Simplot Stadium in front of 4,295 fans.
Gordon hit tight end Marcus Lenhardt (Eagle High) for all three touchdowns, including an 18-yard strike that broke a 17-17 tie with 2 minutes, 6 seconds left in the third quarter. Chris Waters set up the TD when he recovered a fumble on a Rocky Mountain punt snap on the previous play, and the Yotes scored the final 21 points of the game.
The Yotes (3-4, 3-3 Frontier Conference) jumped out to a 10-0 lead and never trailed as they matched their league win total from a season ago with four games remaining.
Lenhardt caught eight passes for a career-high 143 yards, the most by a College of Idaho receiver since 1969.
