Creighton is moving on.
The Bulldogs, who have allowed more than 14 points once since a season-opening loss to Neligh-Oakdale, used their lockdown defense coupled with their high-powered offense to blow past Tri County 76-33.
The Bulldogs got on the board early thanks to quarterback Ryan Neumann. Tri County quickly countered to take the lead, 7-6. However, that was the last Creighton would allow the Trojans the opportunity to lead.
A second Nuemann rushing touchdown gave the Bulldogs a 12-7 lead. Neumann would next add a touchdown through the air, eventually reaching halftime accounting for five touchdowns and over 300 yards of total offense. The Bulldogs led 60-19 going into the break.
In the second half, the Bulldogs continued their dominance, including an interception thanks to a Travis Tyler tipped ball. They scored just once in the third quarter and once in the fourth quarter, but the extra offense wasn't needed as they cruised to the win.
Creighton's playoff run will likely continue on the road next Tuesday. They await the winner of Lourdes Central Catholic versus Howells-Dodge match up.
