Eight different Colonels rushed in a touchdown.
Lindsey Scott Jr. and Kohen Granier each threw two touchdown passes.
The Colonels scored 33 in the second quarter.
At halftime, the score was 46-0.
Six different Colonels had five or six tackles on defense.

Nicholls opens its six-game Southland Conference schedule at home next Saturday (Feb. 27) against Lamar. Kickoff is scheduled for 3 p.m. and the game will air on ESPN+. The Cardinals had their opener against Northwestern State postponed this weekend due to snow and ice in the area.
