Central Arkansas gets the ball first in a sunny day in Cookeville, Tennessee.
This should be a good game but as I wrote in my column this week, I think the Bears will be able to win on the road this week over the Golden Eagles.
Dick has the Bears moving on this drive. He has passed mainly into TTU territory.
They have it 1st & 10 at the Golden Eagle 42.
But now have a 3rd & 8 from the 40. Steele gains 16 on a pass from Dick for the first down on the 24.
The Bear drive stalls but Camara hits a 35 yard field goal to put UCA up 20-7.
We currently have 6:50 left in the 3rd qtr.
TTU has returned the ball to the 20 and currently have a 3rd & 20 after a holding call that nulified a first down. Lamb just runs for a short gain so it is punt time after another three and out.
The Golden Eagle punt is not good as the Bears will start in TTU territory at their 46.
After a short four yard run, Dick hits Jesse Grandy for a 42 yard pass on a nice fake handoff for a touchdown. The PAT is good.
UCA 27 TTU 7 with 4:50 left in the 3rd qtr.
The UCA kickoff is fumbled and then returned just to the TTU 17.
This likely is a must scoring drive for TTU.
The Golden Eagles are going backwards with a false start on the first play.
TTU has a 3rd & 14 but UCA calls a time out before the play gets off.
Bedford gets a 24 yard completion from Lamb out to the 40 yard line.
Dontey Gay with some nice running has the Golden Eagles into Bear territory. They are currently at the UCA 45 but now face a 3rd & 7 from there.
We have 50 seconds left in the 3rd qtr.
Benford catches a long pass to put TTU down to the UCA 21.
Gay gets one on the next play down to the UCA 20 and that was the last play of the 3rd period.
TTU will have it 2nd & 9 when the 4th qtr starts.
Zeigler with a short receptetion on 2nd down
Lamb gets the first down on the 3rd down play. They have a 1st & goal at the nine now.
Gay gets four to the 5 yard line.
TTU wastes a time out before the 2nd & goal play.
Lamb hits Charlie Stevens with a pass from six yards out for the touchdown (marked outside of the five). PAT is good.
UCA 27 TTU 14 with 13:13 left in the game.
Isiah Jackson returns the kickoff and goes backwards on the return. UCA will start at their own 13.
Steele with a big catch on a 2nd & 9 play to get the Bears out to their own 30 and the Golden Eagles hit him late out of bounds to put the ball out to the 45.
We have 12:00 left in the game currently after a no gain by Bobo on the next play.
Dezmin Lewis with a nice sideline catch gets the Bears into TTU territory of 11 yards at the TTU 44.
UCA gets to the 30 and then score on a pass from Dick to Hart. PAT is good.
UCA 34 TTU 14 with 9:49 left.
This game is getting close to over unless TTU can score quickly.
TTU gets a nice return to their own 39.
