The Wildcats scored 21 unanswered points on the Bison after initially falling behind 7-0, but ultimately couldn’t stop Jensen when they needed to. He finished the game with three total touchdowns, two passing and one rushing, while posting 164 passing yards.

The Wildcat rushing attack didn’t render much assistance; only gaining 40 yards on 23 rushes. John Hubert lead the team with 23 yards on 10 carries. The passing game carried the team, both Thompson and Tyler Lockett had 100+ yard receiving games and both scored a touchdown. Waters finished the game 21/29 for 280 passing yards and two touchdowns and two interceptions.
