The winning drive spanned the end of the third quarter and start of the fourth, eating up more than six minutes. The Cardinals then added an insurance score three minutes later.

Spading’s only score came on an 18-yard touchdown pass from Ausin Tutas to Zakee Wheatley that tied the game in the third quarter.
With the game tied at 7 with 4:19 left in the third quarter, the Cardinals took over at their own 32-yard line. They moved 68 yards on 16 plays and took the lead when Cole Herbert used a second effort to get in from the 1 on fourth down.
