Panthers give good reason to celebrate homecoming

Posted: Updated:

The UNI Panthers gave their fans a good reason to celebrate homecoming by beating the University of Northern Colorado Bears 46-7 on Sat.

Northern Iowa struck fast scoring early in the first quarter and not slowing down until halftime.

Their lead over UNC was 36-0 during the halftime break.

The Panthers didn't have as many points in the second half, but still held off the Bears and allowed only one touchdown.

David Johnson had nearly 200 yards even though the Panthers put in their second string players in the fourth.

UNI's win was a much needed confidence boost for the Panthers because they hadn't yet won a game yet in the 2014 season.

The Panthers play Tennessee Tech next Sat. at the UNI-Dome in Cedar Falls.
