Final: North Alabama 23, ACU 17

Sensing victory, the Lions turned to a time-eating ground game. When Mo Milliam caught a 3-yard pass from Lee Chapple and attempted to score with 5:09 left, he fumbled, and ACU's Lee Suggs recovered in the end zone for a touchback.

ACU's Mitchell Gale proceeded to lead his team 80 yards down the field and into the end zone, capping the drive when he passed five yards to Taylor Gabriel with 1:42 left. Morgan Lineberry's PAT was good, pulling the Wildcats to within six points, 23-17.

UNA recovered the onside kick and ran out the clock.
