Donnel Pumphrey then scored his first touchdown on a 49 yard run to extend the Aztecs to 10-0 in the 2nd quarter.

The Rebels would get on the board on a 45-yard touchdown pass from Lamar Jordan to Carlos Wiggins to cut the Aztecs lead to 10-7 at the half.

Chase Price opened the second half with a 27-yard touchdown run to extend the Aztecs lead to 17-7 to begin the 3rd quarter.
