Richard Murrell returned a fumble 82 yards for one score, while Marquise King hauled in touchdown-scoring passes of 19 and 20 yards from quarterback Cortez Sprangle. Sprangle also threw an 18-yard strike to Josh McCoy.

The defensive leaders were Murrell, McCoy, Jones, Montgomery, Wayne Hammonds, Jarren Reed, Michael Sawyer and Trebor Jackson.
