SPECIAL TEAMS - Tiyon Evans, Hutchinson
In his first game as a kickoff return specialist, freshman Tiyon Evans had a huge impact for the No. 1 Blue Dragons in a 34-27 win at No. 7 Iowa Western on Saturday. Coming out of halftime, which was extended to about 40 minutes because of a weather delay, Evans immediately jump-started the Blue Dragons with a scintillating 95-yard kickoff return for a touchdown. He broke out of eight tackles and a pirouette to slip away from another to boost the Blue Dragon lead to 27-13 just one play into the second half. Evans returned three kickoffs and averaged 50.7 yards per return.
