TAMPA — The Kickoff Classic game is where teams figure out their identity before next week's season opener. For Tampa Bay Tech, it discovered the style of football it will play by utilizing its passing game, and Blake had no answer. Titans quarterback Deon Cain came out gunning the ball from the first snap and never looked back as he completed 15 of 19 for 178 yards and five touchdown passes. The Yellow Jackets couldn't get anything going on both sides of the ball. TBT's defense delivered a solid performance by holding Blake out of the end zone. For the most part, Blake's offense found itself losing yards due to the Titans' size advantage up front. The Yellow Jackets were also hindered by 105 yards of penalties.
Tajee Fullwood led the Titans with an interception and caught a 31-yard touchdown reception while Deon Thompson finished with 83 yards rushing and a touchdown.
