Down by six points within the final minute, a 3-yard rushing touchdown by Terrell Washington Jr. became the difference-maker, as the Raiders went on to win 29-28.
Thoughts from Coach Marcus Gold
“Success is always good, but I think we need to learn more about the process of [winning],” Gold said. “I’d rather lose a game but get better fundamentally. We’ll have to go back to the film and see if we got better. We have to improve every week, and make sure we’re doing the best we can to succeed.”
