MOCS GAME IN BITS & PIECES

Chattanooga Times Free Press - - SPORTS -

SATUR­DAY’S STAR

Tyrell Price topped the 100-yard rush­ing mark for the first time in his UTC ca­reer, fin­ish­ing with 118 yards on 22 car­ries and two scores while adding 22 yards re­ceiv­ing. His fi­nal run, a 40-yarder, put the game out of reach in the fourth quar­ter.

SATUR­DAY’S STAT

Bryce Nun­nelly fin­ished with 117 yards re­ceiv­ing on eight catches, be­com­ing the first Moc to top 100 yards re­ceiv­ing in three con­sec­u­tive games since Blue Cooper in 2009.

TURN­ING POINT

The Sky­hawks drove down­field in the sec­ond quar­ter with a chance to cut UTC’s lead to 13-7. Dresser Winn’s pass in the end zone was in­ter­cepted by Ka­reem Orr, who re­turned it out to the 30-yard line. The Mocs would score on that drive to go up 20-0.

HIGH­LIGHT PLAY

On Price’s fi­nal touch­down, he took a hand­off and fol­lowed full­back Tor­rez Fin­ney go­ing to his right be­fore cut­ting to his left, break­ing a few tack­les and sprint­ing 40 yards for a touch­down that put the Mocs up 34-17 in the fourth quar­ter.

WHAT IT MEANS

The Mocs are 3-0 with all wins com­ing against Di­vi­sion I com­pe­ti­tion for the first time since 1979. In backto-back weeks, they’ve gone on the road and beat The Ci­tadel and UTM, both of which de­feated UTC in 2017. They’re un­blem­ished with an out­side chance of be­ing ranked in the Top 25.
