The 6-foot-3, 240-pound senior from Templeton ran for 101 yards and two touchdowns on 22 carries in the Mustangs’ 31-27 comeback win over defending conference champion Southern Utah.
Romanelli, who has 550 yards and six TDs for the season, can tie a Cal Poly record for consecutive 100-yard games with his fifth straight at 11 a.m. Saturday at North Dakota. Antonio Warren set that record in 1995 and 1996.
Additionally, Mustangs defensive end Kyle Murphy (who had three sacks and two forced fumbles in the win) and tackle Sullivan Grosz (one sack, three tackles for loss) were honored by College Football Performance Awards as the Great West’s Week 7 selections.
