Fans packed Lyle Hare Stadium for the Yellow Jackets home opener Saturday afternoon.

In the 2nd quarter, and not much changes. On the 3rd and 5, Jorge Hernandez finds Ziere Banner for the 38 yard touchdown catch and run. That'll be 7 more for Adams State.

Shortly after, Hernandez sends the bullet to James Holtrop who fights his way in for another Grizzly touchdown. The extra point puts Adams State up 31-3.
But don't sleep on Black Hills State. After Phydell Paris bullies his way into the red zone, the Yellow Jackets have the ball on the 2 yard line, and Paris takes the hand off into the end zone for the touchdown. That'll be a 7-point play.
The Yellow Jackets are buzzing now! As Jared Tiefenthaler finds Hernandez and throws him down for the sack. Adams State would have to punt it away.
