The Titans raced out to a 16-0 lead and just once did BC cut the deficit to one score. The 54-22 T-G-U win improved the Titans to 2-0 in the region and 3-1 overall while the Wildcats are still searching for their first win. They are 0-2 in the region and 0-3 overall.

Senior Travis Smette rushed for three scores for T-G-U. Senior Tyler Thorson also found the end zone three times.
