“It was very crucial,” Long said. “We executed very well in the first half. We hit those holes; they were wide open for me on that run and wide open for Bam on that other run. Our O-line did a great job in the first half and executed really well.”

Long finished with 142 yards on nine carries. He completed just 4 of 9 passes for 37 yards but did not attempt a pass until nearly five minutes remained in the second quarter.

But the second half was a different story.

Norman (1-1) failed to score, and kicker Matt Hockett missed a 36-yard field goal, leaving a bad taste in the Tigers' mouth heading into next week.

“The scoreboard wasn't really that great,” Young said. “There's always places to improve. We can't stay complacent.”
