On the first drive of the Homecoming game, the Broncos marched down the field but failed to score after a fumble by Devon Allen ’13.

The Broncos scored four touchdowns in the first quarter.

Dennard scored on back-to-back touchdowns within minutes of each other and Tyler Bruggman ’13 connected with Matt Auran ’13 for a 55-yard touchdown pass.
