Orlando,FL - Ed Luther riddled the Orlando defense for 4 touchdown passes Saturday night to lead the Jacksonville Bulls past the Renegades, 31-10.

Luther, formerly the backup to Dan Fouts of the San Diego Chargers, played with mechanical efficiency, connecting with eight receivers for 397 yards. He finished the night with 26 completions in 33 attempts and 1 interception. He was supported by the slashing running of Mike Rozier, who rushed for 126 yards.

Quarterback Reggie Collier, who had led the Renegades to two straight victories, was throttled most of the night, hitting 20 of 41 pass attempts for 194 yards.
