Iowa Central led 13-3 at the half. Ferris finished with 90 rushing yards, bringing his season total to 1,120 yards with 12 touchdowns despite missing two games with injuries.

With Iowa Central clinging to a 13-10 lead in the fourth quarter Antonio Bassett intercepted Jennings and returned it to midfield setting up a 26-yard touchdown run by Chayse Roth extending the Tritons' final margin of victory.

Jennings completed 23 of 43 passes for 273 yards.

The loss was the first in 11 games for the 10th-ranked Northeast Football Conference champion Dean College Bulldogs (10-1).
