Brett Amburn threw for 208 yards and two TDs. German Delgado kicked a PAT and Garrett Harrington caught a 2-point conversion pass. Demarcus Blackwell rushed for 114 yards. So there were some bright spots.
“We just couldn’t get the butter off our hands early and turned it over four or five times,” Yow said. “That put our defense in tough situations.”
