The Bulldogs hurt their chances of winning the game by throwing five interceptions and fumbling the ball away once.

“You can’t win with six turnovers,” Reed said. “We sputtered a little bit on offense tonight. We weren’t able to move the ball like we should have. We scored two defensive touchdowns and one offensive touchdown.”
