The Cobbers (6-0, 5-0) answered early in the fourth quarter with a 1-yard TD run by Ed Oehlers to cut their deficit to 2 with Halverson's field goal clinching the win.

The Warriors (7-1, 3-0) responded with Cruz's second touchdown and the first of Eric Kraus' two field goals to lead 38-7 by halftime.
