Offensively, Tate Beran contributed two rushing touchdowns, and Nelson Wendell and Noah Hallahan added scores of their own as the Vikings charged out to a 29-0 halftime lead. The defense, led by Bennett McMillen, held Jewel scoreless for the Vikings' third straight shutout. Late in the second half, quarterback Ben Peterson connected with Sam Cervenka, setting up a 30 yard Bennett Konkey field goal to cap the 32-0 victory.
