UW-L drove to the UW-Platteville three-yard line, but Anker was intercepted by Brian Snyder at the Pioneers' goal-line with 1:45 left. 

UW-L finished with 335 yards of offense, including 50 rushing (24 attempts) and 285 passing. Brock Larson had 70 yards rushing on 16 carries while Anker finished 25-of-38 for 285 yards.
