T.J. Graham caught a 34-yard pass from Manuel to score. That came at the end of a 7-minute drive that took 13 plays and covered 68 yards. Then about a minute later, they got the ball on the 4-yard line and punched it in for a second touchdown. Frank Summers was the running back to score the easy touchdown. They added another field goal before the half to take a commanding 20-0 lead at the break.
