"We have a nose guard who is 135 pounds, and we only have one guy who weighs more than 200 on our defensive line," University Coach Mark Cunningham said. "When you have matchups like that, you better be quick, strong and aggressive, or you're going to get blown off the ball. And [the latter] is what happened."
University (5-5, 3-3) is eligible for the division's lone at-large berth, which will be announced along with playoff pairings Sunday. But Cunningham wasn't in much of a mood to consider his postseason chances.
"When you lose, 47-17, to the third place team ... ," Cunningham said.
It was 13-0 after the first quarter, as Loyd capped a seven-play, 65-yard CdM drive with a 3-yard run and Johnson bolted 32 yards to finish a six-play, 63-yard procession. The latter drive was set up by Loyd's pass interception at his own 28-yard line.
