Mills throws 5 TDs, San Diego 42-14 over Butler

Mason Mills threw five touchdown passes as San Diego handed

Butler its first Pioneer Football League defeat of the season 42-14

on Saturday.

Mills, the Toreros’ career passing leader, was 26-of-36 for 407

yards as he went over the 10,000-yard mark. Sam Hoekstra had nine

catches for 175 yards, including a 54-yard touchdown, to go over

2,000 career yards. Brandon White added two touchdown

receptions.

The Toreros (5-3, 4-1), who had a nine-game winning streak

snapped in a double-overtime loss to Dayton a week ago, left no

doubt, rolling to a 35-0 lead before the Bulldogs (6-3, 4-1) scored

their first touchdown on Matt Lancaster’s 3-yard run with 15

seconds left in the first half.

Lancaster, who missed last week’s game with concussion symptoms,

was 24-of-41 passing for 251 yards, including a TD and

interception.

Butler’s defeat left four teams atop the Pioneer with 4-1

records.
