"It wasn't pretty, but our defense played a great game," said Cox, who led the two-minute offense on a do-or-die drive to set up Wes Byrum's game-winning chip shot field goal.
"Offensively we ran the ball very well," Cox said. "We had some good drives, we just couldn't finish them. When it counted, when it came down to it, we moved the ball into field goal position and Wes did his thing again."
Cox finished the night hitting just 13-23 passes for 101 yards, but got a big one to Robert Dunn for 30 yards to beat the blitz on the winning drive.
"It was a quick pass, a shoot route we call it," Cox said of the play that moved the Tigers into field goal range. "They brought a lot of guys on a blitz and I just got it off quick and Robert made something happen with it."
Cox said that offensive Al Borges made a good call on the play. "Having a quick play like that when they were coming was a good call."
