Jonesboro, Ark--I am seeing my first SWAC team in action this evening with Arkansas-Pine Bluff visiting the FBS's Arkansas State out of the Sun Belt Conference.
I hope to see some good action and another close game in this FCS vs. FBS matchup.
We shall see.
4th & 1 at the ASU 5. Anderson throws it away. The Red Wolves will take over.
We have 4:59 left in the opening half.
1st & 10 at the 5. Thorton on the run for 4.
2nd & 6 at the 9. Touchdown Gordon on a 91 yard run.
PAT is good.
Arkansas State 41 Arkansas-Pine Bluff 0 with 4:26 left in the opening half.
This game is pretty much over now. I wonder if the Golden Lions can get on the scoreboard.
The ASU kickoff goes into the endzone for a touchback.
Anderson misses on pass, gets sacked, and runs for a short gain. Another punt by Strickland.
Arkansas State runs down the field again for another touchdown drive. 22 yard reception by Julian Jones was the final play. PAT is good.
Red Wolves lead 48-0 with 2:09 left in the half.
The Golden Lions go backwards again on their next drive and punt.
Arkansas State just takes a knee to send us to the halftime break.
The Red Wolves lead the Golden Lions 48-0 at our break.
Now it will be fun to see the UAPB band.
What a performance by the UAPB band. Even though the score is the way it is, it was worth seeing the band.
After some battery problems. I am back.
The Lions scored on a fumble recovery and also on an amazing play of a blocked extra point to get 8 points on the board.
ASU, however had two more touchdowns before and lead 62-8 now.
We have 4:40 left currently in the 3rd qtr with ASU going for a 4th and 1 and the Lions just stopped them and will take over on downs.
The Lions are driving but face a 4th & 10 at the ASU 18 now.
The Lions will attempt a 39 attempt by Tyler Strickland and it hits the upright but goes in.
Arkansas State 62 Arkansas-Pine Bluff 11 wth 2:12 left in the 3rd qtr.
Good play by the Lions in the last two drives to get on the board.
To note, the Lions are playing without 12 players that were ruled accedemically ineligible so this is a good fight in the team.
I wanted to comment that I just saw a final come in with Eastern Washington pullying off the upset of Top 25 FBS ranked Oregon State 49-46.
I also see McNeese State winning big over South Florida.
This might be a good weekend for FCS upsets over FBS teams.
The Golden Lions force the Red Wolves to punt and the fair catch is the final play of the third quarter. UAPB will take over at their own 28 with a 1st & 10.
It is in mop-up time right now. No more scoring, although UAPB did have another impressive drive but got into deep ASU territory but could not convert a 4th down.
ASU is just running out the clock now with under 2 minutes left.
We have a final now.
ARKANSAS STATE 62 ARKANSAS-PINE BLUFF 11.
