UTC — Safety, Jer­rell Law­son tack­les Tyrie Adams in end zone, 10:59 Key play: Af­ter forc­ing a fum­ble and re­cov­er­ing, only to lose the ball again, the Mocs pinned the Cata­mounts at their own 4-yard line. On third down, Law­son blitzed and got to Adams for the team’s first safety since Dale War­ren blocked a punt against Ford­ham in the 2015 FCS play­offs.
