The first quarter was all about Collins and Jordan while the second quarter was the Marcus Harris show as he ran in two scores to five JA a 28-0 halftime advantage.
The second half started with the final score by JA that would start the running clock for the second time this season as Harris scored his third TD of the game, the fourth time in his career to post a three touchdown performance. The defensive starters were then pulled and the Bruins were able to finally get on the scoreboard with two late TDs including one that ended the game. Dakota Jordan had his second 100 yard receiving game as a Raider. Tate Collins threw for almost 150 yards while Marcus Harris had his 18th game with at least 100 yards rushing.
