The win gave this group of Owls seniors the most wins in a four-year period in program history. The win was also their first Bowl win since a 37-15 win over the Wyoming Cowboys in the New Orleans Bowl on December 17th, 2011.

Owls quarterback Frank Nutile, who was named the MVP of the game, went 18 of 28 for 254 passing yards. He also had a touchdown pass.

David Hood had 14 carries for 76 rushing yards and a touchdown. Ryquell Armstead added 15 carries for 51 rushing yards and a touchdown. Nutile had eight carries for 18 yards and a touchdown.

Keith Kirkwood had six receptions for 96 yards. Isaiah Wright had five receptions for 73 yards and a touchdown. Adonis Jennings also had three receptions for 51 yards.

The Golden Panthers chance of winning this game took a drastic chance when starting quarterback Alex McGough, who was playing in front of more than a 100 family and friends, was injured on the opening drive of the game in the first quarter. Following a rush, where it appeared he landed hard on his shoulder, he attempted to gut it out for another play.

However, following one more play after being injured, Davis called a timeout, so that McGough could get looked at. He would then be ruled out for the rest of the game after 1 of 1 for seven yards and a rush for 17-yards.

Maurice Alexander came in and gone 16 of 33 for 162 passing yards. He also had two interceptions.

Napoleon Maxwell had 11 carries for 52 yards. Alex Gardner also had 10 carries for 26 yards.

Austin Maloney had three receptions for 42 yards. Julian Williams had three receptions for 41 yards. Darrius Scott also had three receptions for 24 yards.

Golden Panthers kicker Jose Borregales made a field goal.
