Williams secured 2 tackles for loss and Jackson had 1, respectively.
Offensivley, NDSCS's ground attack rushed for over 200 yards with Prince Kruah and Kingston Myles doing the majority of the damage. Kruah totaled 94 yards on 28 carries, finding pay dirt one time and Myles rushed for 73 yards on 14 carries and a touchdown.
Quarterback Max Race passed for 100 yard as he connected with Marcus Hill and Grant Brown multiple times. Hill hauled in five passes for 55 yards and Brown snagged 3 passes for 35 yards and scored the lone receiving touchdown for the Wildcats.
