The Eagles (0-5/0-2 WIAC) quickly went three-and-out on their next possession. On the last play of the first quarter, UW-Oshkosh reached deep into the playbook. Nick Olla threw backwards to Dylann Rauch, who was lined up at receiver. Rauch then fired deep down the sideline to a wide-open Cole Myhra for the 54-yard touchdown. Video Highlight

Neither team could score during the second quarter, as UW-Oshkosh compiled 20 yards and UW-La Crosse 13.

A solid kick return set up UW-Oshkosh right after halftime. Cory Wipperfurth jump-started the drive, gaining 22 yards on an option. Myhra then rushed up the middle for a six-yard score that put the Titans ahead, 20-3.

UW-La Crosse was held to its lowest point total in the last 54 meetings with UW-Oshkosh. The Eagles registered their final tally on a 43-yard field goal from Matt Van Druten midway through the third quarter.

Another highlight-reel play came with 12:24 remaining. Olla looked to his right and lofted a 28-yard pass over two defenders. Zach Kasuboski made a diving grab in the corner of the end zone for a touchdown and 27-6 advantage.

Later in the quarter, Ray drilled a 42-yard field goal for the longest of his career.

UW-Oshkosh used interceptions from Austin Blashka, Manfred Johnson and Branden Lloyd. Johnson's second-quarter pick was off a deflection by Beau Steffens.

Olla finished with 17-of-24 passing for 157 yards. Myhra booked 75 yards on five catches and 65 yards on 13 rushes. The Titans also had Kasuboski mark 64 receiving yards and Wipperfurth 59 rushing.

Both squads converted 2-of-14 third downs. UW-Oshkosh owned a 369-173 edge in total yards, while the Titans held UW-La Crosse to 33 rushing yards on 33 attempts.

The Eagles were led by Haffemann's four receptions for 70 yards. Andy Sires totaled 90 yards on 8-of-21 throws before Trent Cummings went 5-of-10 for 50 yards. Jude Williams topped the run game with 10 carries for 27 yards.
