Quarterback Luke Strnad completed 16-of-38 passes for 218 yards but the Red Foxes were held to two rushing yards.

However, the Flyers saw a drive end with a field goal early in the fourth quarter, Sam Webster hitting a 32-yard field goal, and Duquesne scored on the next possession for the game's final points.
