Byrnes RB Marcus Lattimore enjoyed his best game in his young career as he carried 22 times for 165 yards and a touchdown. Lattimore's hard running kept the Elks defense honest and allowed QB Chase Dodd time to orchestrate the Rebel offense when it mattered most.

After a late flag continued a game tying drive for the Elks which came on a field goal the Rebels marched in for another score when Dodd hit WR Ricco Sanders for a 10 yard touchdown.
