Partridge found receiver Ryan Balentine twice in the game with Balentine making an acrobatic catch for a 17 yard score. Running back Rasheed Williams scored three total touchdowns in the game with two coming on the ground.

Receivers Damond Powell and Conner Hollenbeck both caught three touchdowns with Hollenbeck catching two from backup quarterback Marcus Barnett.
