NaQuari Rogers‘ versatility was on full display to lead Campbell. He accumulated 90 yards on the ground and another 52 receiving yards out of the backfield to cause havoc for Hampton’s defense. Down the field, Ezeriah Anderson was the Fighting Camels’ best option. Anderson finished with four receptions for 45 yards. The team committed to the ground game early and often (52 1st quarter rushing yards, 68-32 overall run-pass split). The strategy was successful as the Fighting Camels wore down the defense with 202 total rushing yards.
Running back Darran Butts starred in the ground game for Hampton, racking up an impressive 124 yards on 17 carries. The Pirates’ pass defense was a key component to their struggles against the Fighting Camels. They allowed 11.3 yards per pass attempt.
