Travis LaTendresse led the receiving corps with five receptions for 86 yards. Steven Savoy caught three passes for 65 yards, including a 37-yard touchdown, and Paris Warren had one catch, a 23-yard touchdown reception.
Defensively, Kawika Casco and Eric Weddle both had interceptions that each returned for a touchdown. Weddle's was for 65 yards, and Casco returned it 50 yards for the score. Lewis Powell and Tevita Kemoeatu each recovered fumbles.
Sione Pouha and Arnold Parker each had a sack, and four others - Shaun Harper, Bo Nagahi, Ray Holdcraft and Reza Williams - had pass break-ups. Williams also forced a fumble, while Willie Sao had two pass deflections at the line of scrimmage.
