Shortly after the Tech offense scored, the defense retook the spotlight by forcing the fifth MTSU turnover of the day. This time it was Julian Burnett knocking the ball loose and Steven Sylvester with the recovery.
Nesbitt and the offense took 6 plays and 2:48 to score this time, only needing to go 30 yards. Anthony Allen scored his second rushing touchdown of the day to give the Jackets the 35-7 lead.
It was the third straight possession that ended in a touchdown for the Jackets. All three drives started in MTSU territory.
