Defensive back Demarre Nelson had two interceptions, including a pick six in the second quarter to put the Cards up 14-7. Nelson also earned his second athlete of the week selection. The Cardinals improve to 2-6 overall (2-4 in the Empire 8) heading into the final game against Buffalo State on Saturday Nov. 10.
