JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Jacksonville University used two touchdowns from wide receiver Andrew Robustelli and another pair from running back Frantz Caudio to roll Campbell, 45-19, on Saturday.
The Dolphins, who pulled out of consideration for the Pioneer Football League title and any post season play on Friday, ended the season 9-2 overall and a league-best 7-1. The Camels are now 5-6, 4-3.
Jacksonville broke out to a 14-0 lead early in the first quarter as Caudio, from Fleming Island, Fla., scored on a 10-yard run and Robustelli (Sarasota, Fla.) caught a 35-yard pass from Kade Bell with 6:07 to play in the first.
Senior Orlando Thomas with a 9-yard run and Brandon Behr's 42-yard field goal in the second quarter gave the Dolphins a 24-7 halftime lead in the Senior Day game.
Robustelli caught a 21-yard touchdown pass from Bell and sophomore Ulysses Bryant had a 5-yard run in the third quarter for a score. Bryant (Jacksonville, Fla.) ended the game with 115 yards rushing giving him 1,005 for the year, the first time a Dolphins player has done that since Rudell Small in 2010.
Bell, a redshirt junior from Fleming Island, Fla., finished the day completing 21 of 31 passes for 286 yards with three touchdowns and an interception.
Bell's effort set single-season records for most pass attempts (376), passing yards (3,181) and total offense (3,203) records all that were held by Josh McGregor.
"We went out and did this for the seniors,'' he said. "It has been a tough week but we wanted them to go out on a good note.
JU coach Kerwin Bell said this year's team was "one of the most fun'' he has had to coach.
"We thought through a lot of adversity and a lot of tough road games and we found a way to go 9-2,'' coach Kerwin Bell said. The Dolphins had road games five consecutive weeks.
"This is a tough conference but we won a lot of games on the road and it's great to be known as champions. We think we're the champions of this league and I am proud of our seniors for it.''
