Omaha defense got on the scoreboard first as JayShawn Washington picked up a fumble and returned it for a touchdown. The Outlaws finally scored with 13:00 left in the second quarter as two-way star D’Nerius Antoine punched it in from two yards out, but newly signed Billings kicker Darrien Crowe missed the extra point kick and the Beef led 7-6. Tommy Armstrong, who had 7 rushes for 13 yards in the game, added two touchdowns runs and the Beef took a 21-6 lead into halftime.

During that drive Omaha suffered their first sack allowed as Armstrong was tackled by Victor Martinel for a six-yard loss. On their last drive of the third quarter, Billings was able to score again as Josh Best caught a 14-yard pass from Jamario Benson with 1:45 left. Armstrong needed only three plays to score as he hit Gourney Sloan with a 21-yard pass and Ortiz hit his fourth PAT and the Beef lead 30-12.  

Omaha’s defense then scored twice as Key James Black grabbed a fumble in the Outlaws endzone and JayShawn Washington picked up another fumble and returned it 40 yards as the defense scored for the third time and Washington’s second time. On the night, the Beef had two sacks, three fumble recoveries, and one interception.
