PLAYER OF THE GAME

Riley Nelson: Through the air, he throws 17-for-23 for 335 yards and three touchdowns. He has 161 rushing yards and four scores on the ground.

PLAY OF THE GAME

Logan's first play from scrimmage winds up being a 59-yard pass completion from RileyNelson to JoshFlores. There were big plays galore from Nelson, and that initial strike left an indication of what would be ensuing.

KEY CALL

Logan's defensive game plan to put lots of pressure on heralded quarterback JamesLark pays off beautifully. Surprisingly, Lark finished with only 146 yards, and the Grizzlies' dropped him in the backfield five times.

QUOTABLE

"We knew all year we could win it; we just needed to come together." — Cole Farmer, Logan linebacker
