A safety just two minutes later set up this score on a kickoff from the Cavaliers:
The kickoff return went 60-yards for the touchdown. A running clock in the second half didn't allow for much scoring, but Oakland's B.J. Connard found the endzone on a 27-yard run for the final margin of 43-0.
With the win, Oakland improves to 13-0 and will travel to 12-1 Maryville. The Patriots handed the Rebels their only defeat of the season August 25th by a 17-14 final.
