The Lions racked up 298 total yards on the night, and quarterback Gavin Sumrall completed 14 of 19 passing attempts for 237 yards and a touchdown.
Montez Haynes led the Lions in receiving yards, reeling in three passes for 96 yards. Defensively, Terrence Peeples recorded eight tackles and Tyler Mills recorded six tackles and a sack.
