and a big first half from Nuke Hopkins.

Brown, a defensive end, tipped a Bryn Renner pass at the line of scrimmage and returned it 20 yards for a touchdown…right now those points are the difference in the game.

The defense has forced three turnovers and almost came up with a fourth.

What went wrong: The defense has come up with the turnovers, but has also been burned in the passing game again. Renner has twice hit long passes for touchdowns.

Stat of the game: The Tigers have 14 rushes for 15 yards, while Boyd is 17-for-32 for 207 yards and two touchdowns.
