Oxford (2-1) players were excited to play at home under the lights on the new artificial turf "Wolverine Field" for the first time Friday. Players said they wanted to give fans a show and they sure did, jumping out to a 20-0 lead in the first quarter.
The offensive line protected Chudoba when he dropped back to pass and opened holes for Persson early on.
Oxford played tough defense and actually didn't give up a touchdown: Notre-Dame's only score came on special teams, when Marcus Fulton returned a kickoff 86 yards in the second quarter.
Fulton's burst gave Notre Dame momentum, but the Wolverines marched right back down the field and scored on a 57-yard pass from Chudoba to wideout Chris VanKamerik, putting Oxford up 34-7 at the half.
The Wolverines scored two more times in the second half and played second string players for most of the fourth quarter.
Persson finished with 19 carries for 141 yards and four rushing touchdowns. He also caught one pass for 19 yards.
Chudoba was seven for 10 passing with three touchdowns and 175 yards with no interceptions.
VanKamerik had five catches for 116 yards and two touchdowns for the Wolverines.
Kevin Loshiavo caught one pass for 40 yards, while Gunnar Fay had seven carries for 48 yards. Mickey Krochko had two carries for nine yards, while Nick Racsko had six rushes for 36 yards.
Adam Baktis chipped in with one carry for two yards, while Joe Romagna had one carry for five yards.
