The running back broke past the secondary and scampered 39 yards for his second touchdown, and the game's final points.
"My goal was just to do my job," Torres said, who had seen four different running backs get steady carries this year before he got his opportunity. "I'm still at the bottom so I've got to work twice as hard."
The Vaqueros' defense, which came into the game as the top defensive unit allowing just 186 yards per game, did their part to control the Brahmas' offense.
In addition to Patterson, Josh Nesbitt, Michael Esquivel and Eliot Jones all had interceptions and helped limit the Brahma quarterbacks to just 137 yards passing.
Next week brings the true test to the Vaqueros as they travel to face Citrus, with first-place in conference on the line.
"Whoever wins that game will go a long way toward winning [the conference]," said Cicuto, whose team has now won 13 straight regular season games. "They are by far the best team we've seen all year."
