After a scoreless first quarter, KJ Ford scored from short range to give Bluffton a 7-0 advantage. Tykeem Major had the big play of the first half with a 64 yard run down to the one yard line. That led to Shameik Blackshear scoring from a yard out to make it 14-0. Bluffton took a 20-0 lead at the half on CJ Frazier's short TD pass to Gerald Robinson.
Shrine Bowler Fabian Jefferson scored on a 15 yard TD pass from Josh Johnson for the Bruins first points of the game. Running back Rodney Brunson closed out the scoring with a 13 yard touchdown run.
