Santa Clara overcame a 14-8 halftime deficit and took a 28-26 lead on a seven-yard touchdown pass from Jimmie Griffin to David Ramirez with 3:21 to play.

Griffin scored on touchdowns runs of one, 10 and two yards, but finished with minus-25 yards in eight carries. He completed 24 of 34 passes for 300 yards, including 238 yards and the touchdown to Ramirez in the second half.

Ramirez had eight catches for 133 yards. Skophammer carried eight times for 44 yards for Malibu.
