On a fourth-and-five with less than a minute to go, Torneden was tripped on a quarterback sneak, but somehow he managed to maintain his balance, stumbling forward to the LHS 15. Officials brought the chains on the field, and Torneden picked up the first down by the nose of the football. After a kneeldown, Free State ran out the clock for its third straight victory in the series.
