The Cardinals would extend the lead to 28-0 before the Tigers finally got on the board halfway throught the 2nd quarter on a Dylan Gray touchdown run to make it 28-7. Mayfield would score one more time in the first half to take a 35-7 lead into the locker room.

Jameer Riley ripped off a long run in the first minute of the 3rd quarter to trim the lead to 35-14. But Mayfield would then score the final 20 points of the game to seal the win.
