Ponder, UCA Bears advance to 2nd round of NCAA football playoffs Down 17-7 at the start of the fourth quarter, it appeared the season was coming to an end for the University of Central Arkansas Bears in the first round of the FCS college football playoffs last Saturday in Conway.
Then the remarkable happened. The Illinois State Redbirds were forced to punt from near their goal line after a punt from Patrick Ponder had pinned them deep in their own territory. A missed tackle allowed UCA to block the kick and recover for a touchdown. With the extra point the game suddenly became more interesting at 17-14.
Strong defense forced a quick three and out by the Redbirds following the TD and the Bear's ensuing possession drove the field 83 yards for their first lead of the contest at 21-17. Dec 2, 2016, 17:54
