MOCS GAME IN BITS & PIECES
Tyrell Price had 173 yards of total offense against the Catamounts, including a career-high 135 yards on 29 carries. It was a spectacular performance for Price, who had rushed for only 101 yards in the past three games combined.
The UTC defense held the Catamounts, who were averaging a Southern Conference-best 35.8 points per game, to six points on a pair of field goals and 238 yards of total offense — less than half of their season average.
The Catamounts had driven to the UTC 1-yard line and had first-and-goal, but a bad exchange between the quarterback and running back led to a fumble that was recovered by the Mocs, who turned the takeaway into three points.
The Mocs’ Joseph Parker had a nice over-the-shoulder catch for his first touchdown of the season, torquing his body and making the grab before falling out of bounds.
WHAT IT Means
The Mocs enter an off week on a high, with both sides of the ball doing what was necessary to get the win. There’s still plenty to clean up, but the team gets a level of feel-good and a week to rest before hosting VMI for homecoming.
