It completed a five play, 25 yard drive in 2:58 that began after a recovered fumble at the Union 25. Rochester had a pass intercepted by Joseph with 5:52 remaining but held Union off the board, and the Dutchmen posted another interception with 1:46 left in the period at their own 33.

With 3:34 left in the fourth period, Tyhler Viterise blocked a Union punt and Farid Adenuga recovered at the Union 16. But the Dutchmen held and after an incomplete pass on fourth down, took over on their own 15. Two plays later Franzese ran 83 yards but Kobie Hamm forced a fumble that was recoverd by Shola Fakorode in the Rochester endzone with 54 seconds left.
