Moore scored again six minutes later on a 14-yard run out of the Wildcat formation. The first quarter ended with Washburn on top, 13-0.

After more staunch defense and a field goal on a drive that took up over half the second quarter, the Ichabods were up 16-0 with just under four minutes remaining in the first half when Moore returened a punt 85 yards for his third touchdown of the game. The second half concluded 23-0, Washburn.

The Ichabods were shut out in the third quarter, with Emporia State scoring 10.

The Ichabods held on, though. Just a minute into the fourth quarter, Moore rushed for a first down and Washburn history. He broke the school record of most all-puprpose yards in a game with that fourth quarter rush.

Washburn scored twice more, once by Moore and once by quarterback Zeke Palmer.

Moore finished the game with 306 all-purpose yards and four touchdowns.

The final score was 36- 10, Washburn.
