AKRON, Colo. (AP) - Akron thrashed the Limon Badgers 46-14 Saturday for the Class 1A state football title, the second championship in a row that it won with a 13-0 record.

The Rams started the season with a 14-10 victory over 2A Yuma, and no other team came within 13 points the rest of the way.

Akron, which has won 26 straight, outscored its season-long opposition by an aggregate 535-52.

The Rams took charge on Saturday from the start. The Rams dropped Limon quarterback Matt Brown for a 9-yard loss on the first play, forced five consecutive punts, scored on their first play from scrimmage on a 9-yard run by Joe McKay and cruised to a 34-0 halftime lead.

Limon (11-2), which has won a Colorado record 17 championships, was held to 1 yard rushing.

The only signs of life came in the third quarter, when Brown found Marcelis Tatum for a touchdown, but Duncan Krause intercepted Brown on the Badgers' next series.

Akron finished with 366 yards rushing, 470 in total offense [Single-Wing] .
