The Wildcat quarterback was 12-of-18 passing for 246 and four touchdowns. He also ran for 99 yards and two scores and accounted for six touchdowns for the second straight game.
Jordan became the seventh Trigg quarterback to pass for over 3,000 career yards.
Early, it was Jakobe Bridges who got off to the fast start with a 39-yard touchdown pass from Jordan and a 10-yard scoring run. Bridges finished with three catches for 86 yards and two rushing attempts for 17 yards. The senior needs five catches to pass Prince Northington for the Wildcat leader in career receptions.

Jordan later added a 2-yard run in the third quarter that triggered the running clock.
Cade Bleidt’s 4-yard run and Kelsey Parham’s 23-yard run in the fourth quarter closed out the scoring.
