"We knew (Russell) is a poised quarterback," Moore said. "He sits in there and makes throws. But that can be a good or a bad thing. He extends plays and that can be good for the pass rush."
By the time Russell had some success it was too late. He threw a 14-yard pass to Chad Bumphis in the third quarter and added a 4-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter.
LaDarius Perkins led the Bulldogs with 42 yards rushing, and Arceto Clark caught five passes for 64 yards.
"We as a team played very poorly," Mullen said. "That's 100 percent my fault. As head football coach, that all falls on my shoulders. In every phase, we played very poorly. I will give them credit — their kids played very well. They have a good football team."
