1. Oakland-Craig came into the night allowing an average of seven points per game — an average that will drop with the shutout. Led by 6-foot-2, 205-pound junior middle linebacker Mike Brands, the Knights fly to the football and make enough plays in the secondary to shut down high-powered offenses.
2. South Dakota State commit Wyatt Seagren, a 6-foot-7, 250-pound tight end/defensive end, was disruptive all night. He tipped at least four passes at the line of scrimmage and pressured the quarterback until Oakland-Craig's first-team defense was removed from the game in the third quarter.
3. Credit to Oakland, Neb., community for getting the football field and surrounding area in shape after the March flood. You couldn't tell by looking at it, but the field was under eight feet of water in March. The track was freshly poured two weeks ago.
