The Butte College football team kicked off NorCal League play in a big way Saturday by pounding Feather River 62-13 at Cowan Stadium.
Roadrunners quarterback Tommy Hays completed 8-of-11 passes for 99 yards with three touchdowns. The Paradise product also rumbled for a team-high 144 rushing yards on nine carries with one touchdown. Martin Fleming ran for three scores and 40 yards.
Butte wide receiver Stephen Robinson caught 3 passes for 61 yards and three scores.
The Roadrunners offense outgained Feather River 441 to 225.
Butte's defense forced four turnovers (2 INT, 2 fumbles) and came up with seven sacks.
With the win, the Roadrunners improved to 3-3 overall and 1-0 in the NorCal conference.
Saturday's contest was also Alumni Day, and it's safe to say this year's version of Roadrunners made the former players in attendance proud.
Butte returns to action next Saturday against Sierra in Rocklin at 1:00 p.m.
