Briceton Wilson broke loose for a 44-yard touchdown run for the Gorillas first score with 7:37 to play in the first quarter. Dickey , who carried 22 times for a game-high 111 yards, added a 2-yard run early in the second quarter. He also tossed a 27-yard touchdown pass to Eric Love with 2:56 to play in the half, after the Gorillas recovered a fumble in UCM territory.

Jon Thomas added a 70-yard touchdown catch, surviving a hard smashing hit from UCM's Karl Parker 10 yards up field and then scooting untouched the rest of the way for the long score and a 31-10 lead with 3:54 to play in the third quarter.
