Everett would not quit, with a quick change at quarterback, the Predators turned a second and long into a 60-yard touchdown scramble down the sidelines. This would prove to be their only points as the Bulldogs brought down the hammer, closing the game out on a 100-yard interception return of a touchdown as time expired. Final score: 58-6.
