Lawson Page opened the scoring by hitting Chris Nelson with a 55-yard touchdown pass to put the Eagles up, 7-0, but McGovern answered by finding Steven Burdette with a 96-yard touchdown pass, the longest in school history. McGovern followed that with an 18-yard strike to Donald Parham in the final minute of the first quarter to make it 14-14.
JJ Henderson returned an interception 43 yards for a score to open the second half and Parham pulled in a 30-yard pass from McGovern for his second touchdown.
