At Centennial, No. 13 seed Tucson could not overcome the size and power of the fourth-seeded Coyotes. The Badgers finish their season at 7-4; they lost their final three games of the season after sitting at 7-1.

• Highlight reel: Tucson’s Donovan Moore took a pitch then proceeded to launch a deep pass downfield for a 50-yard gain.

• Player of the game: Moore did it all for the Badgers, racking up 161 total yards rushing, passing and receiving. He also caught a touchdown pass.

By the numbers: 6: Tucson committed six penalties, many of which were of the major yardage variety.

He said it: “We played a scrappy game tonight. They played their tails off.” — Tucson coach Justin Argraves
