But the second half belonged to Winslow. Running back Robert Clark scored four of the Black Raiders seven touchdowns in that half. He finished the night with four TDs on 276 yards.

QB Colby Pomeroy threw three TD passes, two of them to to Cody Ivey.

Combined, the teams gained over 900 yards of offense.
