The Horns scored early and often. Jones received the opening kick and scored on a 7 play, 60 yard drive that took a little more than two minutes off the clock. The Longhorns got in the end zone on a one-yard rush by May. Jones got the ball back after a three-and-out by the Bobcats, on the first play on the next drive May found Karl for the first of their three Touchdown connections. Star-Spencer fumbled on the first play of their next drive, which was returned by Kameron Sweat for a 17-yard Touchdown. Only five minutes into the game the Longhorns held a 21-0 play while only running eight offensive plays.
The Longhorns got a productive night from Running Back Dakotah Calvert, who rushed eight times for 54 yards, an average of 6.8 yards-per-carry. Calvert added a Touchdown late in the 1st Quarter to give the Longhorns a 28-0 lead.
Jones would score twice in the 2nd Quarter. May found Karl again on a 26-yard strike with 10:36 left in the Quarter, and on 4th and 2 from the Bobcat 17 yard line May connected with Mason Weiher. This put the Longhorns up with a commanding lead of 42-0 at Halftime.
To open the third quarter, Star-Spencer moved the ball close to midfield, but was unable to convert a 4th and 2. Five plays later, May and Karl connected for the third time of the evening to give the Longhorns 49-0 lead. Star-Spencer would get on the scoreboard on 20 yard TD reception with 13 seconds left in the 3rd. The point-after attempt was no good, giving the horns a 49-6 lead before the half.
Backup players on both offense and defense got a number of snaps Thursday night. Quarterback Clayton Creasey hit Justus Rowlett on a 26 yard reception on the last score of the evening.

Cayden Karl continued his impressive season with another 100-yard multiple TD performance. Calvert was able to get into a flow in the running game. The Longhorn defense was dominant, holding the Bobcats to 82 yards on 34 plays. (2.4 yards per play). The Bobcats fumbled seven times and lost three, were 1/8 on third-down conversions and were forced to punt 5 times.
