Willis ha preso lo snap sulla linea delle 5 yard dei Blue Raiders e ha galoppato alla sua destra cercando di passare. Willis sentì la pressione arrivare e si girò alla sua destra, evitare un potenziale placcatore. After wriggling away from the defender, Willis found himself all the way back at the 26-yard line.
He sidestepped another tackler to step up and fire a pass to wide receiver Brody Brumm. The touchdown put the Flames up 34-13, and his team would not look back, defeating Middle Tennessee 41-13.
Willis finished 17-for-30 with 222 yard passate e due passaggi da touchdown. Lo aveva anche fatto 80 rushing yards on 16 carries with a touchdown. He also threw interceptions, but the Flames’ defense was able to keep the Blue Raiders’ offense at bay most of the game.
