Marist scored the second half's first touchdown, Austin Day connecting with Anthony Olivencia for a 39-yard strike.

The Battling Bishops struck for touchdowns on their first two offensive drives, capitalizing on a Hatters turnover to take a 14-0 lead. Stetson scored the final 10 points of the first quarter then took the lead for good when Gaven DeFilippo found Jeremiah Nails for a four-yard touchdown to open the second quarter. Connor Wilson then returned a blocked punt 12 yards for a touchdown that extended the lead to 24-14 and the Hatters would not be threatened the rest of the way.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Running back B.J. Riley threw a 69-yard touchdown pass to open the day's scoring as Jacksonville downed Ave Maria, 42-28, Saturday at D.B. Milne Field. Riley's big touchdown throw was followed quickly by Calvin Turner Jr.'s 57-yard touchdown run as Jacksonville jumped out to a 14-0 lead.
