Carmoni Green led the team in receiving with four catches for 71 yards, while three different Lamar rushers — Derrion Randle, Cole Starnes and A.J. Walker — eclipsed 70 yards. On defense, Devio Christmon and Jeremy Johnson tallied 11 tackles each for Lamar as it limited the Wildcat offense to just 197 total yards.
