The University of Central Arkansas Bears dominated the Texas College Steers in their home opener, earning a 70-2 victory. Despite the obvious talent level difference, head coach Nathan Brown was impressed with Texas College’s effort. The Bears played roughly 90 players, scoring on 10 consecutive possessions and tying their highest scoring output in the NCAA Division I era. Junior running back ShunDerrick Powell started the scoring frenzy with a 62-yard touchdown run, and the Bears’ defense held Texas College to just 108 yards on 55 plays. UCA’s defense also won the turnover battle with three interceptions and a fumble recovery. Overall, the Bears amassed 499 yards of total offense, with 396 yards coming on the ground. The team now faces a tough challenge against No. 2 North Dakota State.
