NWMo's 5th Series
Ball on NW 15, first down. TV timeout. Council rushes to right for no gain. Pass complete for gain of 1 to TE Chris Owens. Pass complete at sideline for first down, ball on NW 28. Pass complete over middle for gain to NW 31. Pass complete in right flat for 1st down to NW 46. Pass complete to ACU 36. Council tackled for loss to NW 40. Pass complete to ACU 18. Crowd does not like the call. Council rushes up middle to ACU 15. Pass complete in end zone, but flag at line of scrimmage for chop block, 15 yard penalty to ACU 30. 2nd down. Pass incomplete and nearly intercepted over the middle. 3rd down and 22 to go. NW takes a time out. 7:26 left in Q2. Both teams under 100 yards in total offense in first half; this is not so much a defensive struggle as an offensive deep freeze. Both teams have lots of new players still trying to mesh. Pass intercepted by ACU's Casey Carr, 37-yard return to NW 35.
