Jayce Warren had a monster night of his own, contributing in all facets of the game. He caught both of Haskins’ pass, scoring a pair of touchdowns. He also added 123 punt return yards, including one return for a score. An additional scoring play for Warren came on a kickoff return that he brought 77 yards to the end zone. Finally, on defense, he had three tackles for loss and a fumble recovery returned for a touchdown.
