“It feels horrible getting it taken from you like that,” a dejected Thompson said after the game.”
Guthrie dominated the game statistically, but it appeared four turnovers — two fumbles and two interceptions — might doom the Bluejays.
Carl Albert scored two defensive touchdowns in less than a minute apart in the second quarter on a 33-yard fumble return by defensive end Chantz Woodberry and a 46-yard interception return by safety Caleb Toney.
The Bluejays, though, were tied 14-14 at halftime with the Titans as Dutton connected on two first half scoring strikes with Jordan.
Carl Albert only ran three plays in the third quarter but took a 17-14 lead on Blake Walker's 28-yard field goal with 6:10 remaining in the game.
Dutton, who had only thrown one interception all season entering the game, said he needed to make up for his poor first half on the final drive.
“If it would have ended and we had not scored, it would have looked so bad on my part,” he said. “This would have been a horrible loss, but we pulled through.”
