GREELEY, Colo. -- Seth Lobato threw for 243 yards and a career-high five touchdowns to lead Northern Colorado to a 52-14 win over Idaho State and embattled coach Mike Kramer on Saturday.
Kevin Yost threw for 344 yards and two touchdowns for the Bengals (1-6, 0-4).
It was Idaho State's first game since it was reported that Kramer is being investigated by the university and the Pocatello Police Department for allegedly shoving senior wide receiver Derek Graves to the ground two weeks ago in an incident caught on video.
Graves lodged a complaint with police on Oct. 14 that he was pushed by Kramer during an Oct. 3 practice. His attorney, Don Jackson, said Graves has suffered from neck and back spasms since the incident.
Graves was inactive Saturday and has not played in the Bengals' last three games.
