Washington managed a field goal to wrap up the first half scoring, Tate on top 14-10 headed to the lockers.

Tate increased their lead to 21-10 with 3:59 to go in the third on a pass from Riggan to Patrick Palmer just inside the end zone.

Washington scored with 10:29 to go in the ballgame, 21-17.

Shemari Jones scored another Aggie touchdown with 5:51 in the fourth, and the Aggies added one more TD just over a minute to go for the final 35-17.
