End of Q1: ACU 14, Washburn 14

The Ichabods marched down the field on their first possession, with running back Justin Cooper dashing untouched around left end for 14 yards and a touchdown to open the scoring. Jeremy Linn's successful PAT gave Washburn a 7-0 lead with 11:24 left in the first quarter.

ACU's first play from scrimmage was a huge one – a 41-yard pass from quarterback Mitchell Gale to wide receiver Darrell Cantu-Harkless. Four plays later, running back Daryl Richardson scored the Wildcats' first TD on a 12-yard run after a pitchout to the right side. Morgan Lineberry's successful PAT evened the score at 7-7 with 8:57 left.

Washburn answered back with a 12-yard TD run of its own, this one another score from Cooper with 6:39 remaining. Linn's PAT made the new score 14-7.

Neither team seems to have an answer for the other on defense.

ACU responded with an 80-yard drive, with Gale's 2-yard quarterback sneak landing him in the end zone with 29 seconds left. Lineberry's PAT drew the Wildcats into another tie with the Ichabods, 14-14.
