Lincoln and Avila combined for a paltry 85 yards of offense in the opening period and no scores, but the Blue Tigers exploded for 21 second-quarter points in Lincoln's 35-3 win at Dwight T. Reed Stadium.

After a first quarter in which the Eagles outgained the Blue Tigers just 45-40 and Avila had four fruitless possessions and Lincoln three, the Blue Tigers finally started moving the ball toward the end of the stanza.
