The only scoring of the fourth quarter came on PK Morgan Lineberry's fifth field goal of the year – a 40-yarder – that give ACU a 43-13 lead early in the fourth quarter. He barely missed a 48-yarder (hit the crossbar) a few minutes later.
ACU moved to 2-0 on the season – the second of two big road wins for the nationally ranked Wildcats – while Northeastern State's record was evened at 1-1.
Head coach Chris Thomsen's team plays its home opener next Saturday night (Sept. 18) against another team from Oklahoma (East Central University). The Tigers' coaches will not sleep well this week after watching film of the Wildcats blocking three punts and returning another for a TD, and playing some more stifling defense in this weird and wacky win for ACU.
