Two high school football teams combined to score 180 points on Friday night, setting a new Iowa state record.

Council Bluffs Thomas Jefferson defeated Sioux City North 99-81, the most points ever scored in an 11- or eight-player high school football game in Iowa.

Senior running back Cameron Baker, who has an offer from the University of Iowa, led the way for Jefferson with 371 rushing yards and eight touchdowns on 34 carries, according to Tim Perera of the Omaha World-Herald.

Jefferson had an opportunity to go for triple digits after Baker's eighth touchdown, but coach Brant Anderson told his team to take a knee instead of attempting their final extra point.

"I just felt that football's not a sport where you're supposed to score 100 points," Anderson said. "We just weren't going to do it. I couldn't have stopped us if we had to run a couple more offensive plays. At that point there I was like 'Nah. We're not getting 100.'"
