The Ichabods won their 10th straight game over Lincoln after jumping out to a 24-0 advantage.

Washburn got on the board first on its opening possession with a 25-yard field goal by Trenton Brehm with 10:42 to go in the first quarter, capping an eight-play, 57-yard drive.

After a 5-yard punt by Lincoln (0-3), the Ichabods took over at the Blue Tiger 45-yard-line and needed just seven plays to score their first touchdown of the day on freshman Sam Van Dyne's first touchdown pass of his Ichabod career, a 7-yard pass to Connor Searcy which stretched the WU lead to 10-0 with 6:34 to go in the opening quarter.
A quick four-play drive by the Ichabods was capped by a 60-yard touchdown run by Taylon Peters stretched the Washburn lead to 17-0 after the Washburn defense forced another three-and-out by the Blue Tigers. The touchdown was Peters' 18th of his Ichabod career.
