While the Wildcats are now one game over .500 at 4-3, they have steamrolled their two most recent opponents to the tune of 112-8.

With the two-point conversions and a point adjustment made, the Wildcats took a commanding 30-8 advantage into the halftime break.

After Brady Helms took a 13-yard pass from Unruh in for a score in the early moments of the third quarter, Daniel Kaufman ran wild and scored three touchdowns on runs of 20, 2 and 24 yards to close out the Wildcat scoring and end the game on the 45 point rule due to holding a 56-8 lead.
