The Flames scored the first 24 points of the game and limited No. 25 Bryant to 249 yards of total offense, defeating the Bulldogs, 38-21, to cap off Hall of Fame weekend at Williams Stadium.

A 22-yard touchdown run by running back D.J. Abnar put the Flames up 24-0 with 5:19 left to play in the first half. The visiting Bulldogs used a 64-yard kickoff return and a mishandled punt to trim the lead to 10 before halftime to 24-14.
