Later in the quarter, Smith rambled in for an 8-yard touchdown and the point-after made it 39-0. Smith then threw a beauty to Calhoun for 38 yards. The point after to Pablo Olguin made the score 46-0.
Coolidge closed out the fame on Brown’s nifty 34-yard run. With the point-after, the sccore was 53-0.
