Melton capped the scoring for the Huskies with his 45-yard touchdown run with less than two minutes remaining in the opening half.

Huffman (0-6) recovered an onside kick to open the second half, but turned the ball over on downs on its fourth of five sacks in the game. The Vikings scored on their only other possession, due to a running clock in the second half, and avoided the shutout with a 36-yard touchdown pass from Mekail Alexander-Johnson to Joshua McAdory.
