FAYETTE — Upper Iowa spotted Minot State a 7-0 lead Saturday, then blew past the Beavers for a 35-7 Northern Sun Conference football win Saturday.

The Peacocks (1-3) unleashed a big-play rushing attack that racked up 338 yards and took control with a 21-point third quarter.

Three Upper Iowa backs topped the 100-yard mark. Quarterback Dimitri Morales ran eight times for 133 yards, Derrick Portis finished with 117 yards on 15 carries, and Ryan Parmely added 100 on 12 attempts.

Defensively, the Peacocks forced three turnovers as Minot State fell to 1-3 on the season.

DUBUQUE 30, LUTHER 17 — Dubuque took control over the middle two quarters to deal Luther a 30-17 Iowa Conference defeat Saturday.

The 21st-ranked Spartans (4-0, 2-0) led just 14-10 after a back-and-forth opening period, but scored touchdowns in both the second and third quarters while keeping the Norse (1-2, 0-1) off the scoreboard.

Sam Houlihan gave Luther an early spark with a 74-yard touchdown run, but the Norse didn’t get into the end zone again until the fourth quarter when quarterback Brady Letney scored. Defensively, Luther limited Dubuque to 331 total yards and a 2-for-12 showing on third down.
