In a matchup between two high-octane offenses and featuring one of the best college prospects in the country, it was Miller's offense that proved more combustible in a 49-29 win at Buc Stadium on Friday.
After El Campo scored 14 straight points to answer Miller's early surge, it was the Bucs that threw haymaker after haymaker.
Trevor Long drove Miller 88 yards in six plays for an Ethan Greenwood score and then hit Jayden Moreno in stride for a one-play 80-yard strike that stunned the Ricebirds and staked the Bucs to a 28-14 lead.
An El Campo turnover gave Miller one more shot just before half and Long and Lonnie Adkism capitalized, combining for a highlight-reel 56-yard touchdown spurred by a key downfield block by Datron Denmon before Adkism dove for the pylon to give his team a 35-14 halftime lead.
Long finished 7 of 8 after hitting his first five passes for 257 yards and two touchdowns.
Rueben Owens, El Campo's star running back and a Louisville commit, had 20 carries for 100 yards at half and finished with 158 yards and two scores.
The Buccaneers put up nearly 600 yards in the win.
