Burrell returned a punt 63 yards for a touchdown and setup another score on a 54-yard kickoff return in the win. The two big returns occurred within a span of 1:45 in the third quarter just after King’s had cut the lead to 23-17. Burrell finished with 138 return yards on two punt returns and two kick returns.

The Pride will now enjoy its bye week before it will open up Empire 8 conference play at Alfred on September 26.
