REDLANDS — Bryan Scott and a pair of emerging weapons had another good day on offense, but the Occidental football team still couldn't keep up with Redlands, losing its SCIAC opener 63-29 on the road on Saturday.
Scott, a First Team All-SCIAC selection last season, was 29 of 46 for 311 yards and a pair of touchdowns. He also scrambled to keep plays alive and made plays with his legs, running for 61 yards a touchdown.
The senior from Rolling Hills is completing 65 percent of his passes and leads the SCIAC with 356 yards per game, eight touchdowns and just one interception this season.
Gruber, a versatile senior who's played wide receiver and running back, had his first 100+ yard rushing day, finishing with 22 carries for 101 yards and one touchdown. His longest carry was a 20-yarder.
Gittelman-Egan caught 10 passes for 111 yards, nearly matching his outstanding Week 2 performance. In Oxy's last game, the sophomore converted quarterback broke out for 122 receiving yards and two touchdowns.
Harris is leading the conference with nearly nine receptions a game for 87 yards.
The Tigers return home next weekend to face undefeated Claremont-Mudd-Scripps at 7 p.m. on Saturday at Jack Kemp Stadium.Follow Oxy Athletics on Twitter Sign Up for Newsletters Watch on Youtube Follow us on Instagram
