OAKLAND -- The visiting Jaguars cruised to victory in Oakland on Friday night thanks to 128 rushing yards and two touchdowns from running back Malichai Dawson and 99 rushing yards and two touchdowns from quarterback Chad Miller.

A 68-yard touchdown run by Miller early in the second quarter gave Bethel (1-0) a 7-0 lead and they never looked back. The Jaguars built their advantage to 21-0 with less than five minutes to go in the third quarter on a 16-yard touchdown toss from Miller and a 76-yard touchdown run from Dawson.

Oakland Tech (0-1) put a nice drive together to score its lone touchdown of the game as quarterback James Lewis completed five passes during the drive and scored on a two-yard plunge. Lewis rushed for 111 yards and threw for 119 for the Bulldogs.
