McCuller tossed another touchdown pass in the first quarter, this time for 31 yards to Demarcus Smith, to put KC up 21-0 with five minutes left in the first quarter.

After KC fumbled and ABC recovered at the Kilgore 24 yard line, Kilgore forced a Buffalo punt, but fumbled on the next series.

After recovering the fumble, KC's Darius Doakes intercepted an ABC pass and ran it back to the 48 yard line.  On the next play, KC's Carlos Frank exploded for a 45-yard run to the three yard line.  Frank scored from the three yard line on the next play to put KC up 35-0 with 9:09 left in the third quarter.
