The Lions won the opening toss and elected to receive. Scott completed a pass to Josh Hadley for 12 yards to get things started and then hit Hadley for another eight-yard pass. Scott completed another pass to Johnson for seven yards, before he hooked up with Pounds for a 41-yard touchdown pass to go up 7-0 early on.
 
Robbins blocked a field goal from NSU with 14:51 left in the second quarter, but the RiverHawks tied the game at seven with 11:09 left in the second quarter. NSU then went ahead with a 20-yard field goal to lead 10-7 with 8:27 to go in the half.

The RiverHawks got a touchdown pass from Yaeger to Ra'Keim Abdul with 53 seconds left in the half, but Robbins blocked the extra point and recovered the ball, lumbering 70-plus yards to get the two-point PAT return and tie the game at 16 going to the half.
 
Neither team scored in the third, but the Lions went up 23-16 with 7:53 left in the fourth. A NSU fumble, recovered by Martin Cano gave the Lions the ball back on the NSU 41-yard line.
 
Scott worked a quick drive and after a pair of rushes from James for seven yards each, Bennett caught a 25-yard pass for the score.
 
NSU tied the game at 23 with 1:36 left in the fourth, giving the Lions the ball and a chance to win late. Neither the Lions, nor the RiverHawks would score as both teams had a possession in the final 1:36, sending the game to overtime.
 
Both teams made a field goal in the first overtime with Brock Renken hitting a 32-yarder to tie the game and send it to double-overtime. Renken connected on another field goal, this time from 42 yards to give the Lions a 29-26 lead, but a 23-yard touchdown pass for the RiverHawks gave NSU the win.
