End of Q3: ACU 47, East Central 7

ACU took the opening kickoff of the second half and drove steadily down the field. The trip was capped by a 19-yard field goal by Morgan Lineberry with 11:18 left in the third quarter, stretching the Wildcat lead to 47-7. The big play on the drive was a 27-yard pass to RB Charcandrick West from QB Mitchell Gale, whose night ended after an impressive performance: 23 of 32 for 263 yards and 5 TDs.

Backup QB Clark Harrell – the younger brother of former rec0rd-setting QB Graham Harrell of Texas Tech University – took over for Gale on ACU's second possession. He and freshman RB Josh Morgan moved the Wildcat offense down the field smoothly, but Lineberry's 36-yard field goal attempt at 4:51 was off the mark.

The third quarter ended with ACU up, 47-7, and the Wildcats holding a 24-5 advantage in first downs. For the game, the Tigers had -8 yards on 20 rushing attempts and 131 yards of total offense, thanks to a dominating Wildcat defense.
