Israel Woolfork and Chris Robinson celebrate a touchdown in GVSU's 83-46 win over Notre Dame College.
ALLENDALE, Mich. (WZZM) - Grand Valley State opened newly renovated Lubbers Stadium with a near record performance in an 83-46 win over Notre Dame College.
In front of 15,139 fans, the second biggest crowd in Lubbers Stadium history, the Lakers scored 83 points, the second most in school history, to improve to 2-0. GVSU scored 91 against Valparaiso in 1989.
The 129 points scord between the two teams was the most ever in Laker football history.
Quarterback Heath Parling threw for 307 yards and four touchdowns, while Chris Robinson rushed for 113 yards and four scores.
The Lakers re-dedicated Lubbers Stadium before the game. Their home field underwent a massive renovation during the offseason. A new turf surface was installed and 2,000 seats were added.
GVSU travels to Tiffin next Saturday.
