Though it did not look that great on the scoreboard, the defense really had some upside in this game. The whole defense had hustle and flew to the football on almost every play while the front seven did an awesome job in eliminating their run game only allowing 12 rushing yards all game on what is a pretty consistent backfield for the Bulldogs.
As far as how the Blaze offense performed, their production improved immensely as the game progressed. Once they found their groove they consistently drove down the field almost the whole second half with quarterback Robert Jones connecting with his receivers racking up the possession catches on a level most defined as automatic. Jones threw for a season high 227 yards.
