Fourth Quarter

0:04 — Stevens throws his third touchdown pass of the game to Juwan Johnson. Franklin lets the clock run out before Davis can kick the extra point and Blue wins 26-0.

0:22 — Stevens throws an incomplete to pass to Hamilton in the end zone. Two different near scoring opportunities this drive for the redshirt sophomore.

1:57 — Stevens has Blue driving with under two minutes to play. He just overthrew a ball from his own 46-yard line to Irvin Charles inside the ten.

6:57 — Stevens hits Polk for a 31-yard touchdown and Blue has opened this game up to 20-0.

Third Quarter

0:00 — After three, Blue leads White 13-0.

0:36 — Stevens to Robinson for a nine-yard touchdown. Tyler Davis converted the extra point and Blue now leads 13-0.

3:15 — Stevens found Thompkins for a 50-yard pickup to move the ball well into White territory.

7:16 — Stevens put together a nice drive but not before a trick play where Andre Robinson threw a pass off a pitch was picked off by TJ Johnson.

11:00 — Tommy Stevens relieves McSorley of his duties to start the second half.

Second Quarter

0:07 — McSorley got the ball to the White five-yard line but couldn’t score. Davis knocked down his second field goal of the afternoon to extend Blue’s lead to 6-0 at the half.

0:41 — Another three-and-out for Zembiec and White. McSorley still on the field for Blue as the first half is nearing its conclusion.

1:16 — As I say that, McSorley throws an interception inside the ten to Ayron Monroe, who returns the ball well inside Blue territory. A penalty however brings the ball back to the White 11-yard line.
