They saw multiple guys see games at quarterback last season. All of them saw success on the field when given the opportunity to play.Carlos Blackman led the bears in rushing a season ago with 809 yards. Luke Hales was one of many quarterbacks who saw the field a season ago but lead the team in passing yards with 1857 yards.

On defense last year the bears gave up 26 points per game. They gave up 111 yards on the ground and 16 touchdowns. While though the air they gave up 290 yards a game and 19 touchdowns. While teams would average 7.5 yards per competition. Teams averaged over 400 yards per game against UCA. When teams got to the red-zone they score points on 85% of the time, Touchdowns’ they got six points 61% of the time. Juan Jackson lead the bears defense in tackles with 91 ( 67 solo and 24 assisted).

With these stats from a season ago they saw a record of 6-5 playing 1 FBS team on that schedule. After looking over the stats from a season ago this game won’t be a cake walk like some other FCS games of the past.

Going into the 2019 season UCA is breaking in a new defense coordinator Chad Williams. He was on the staff last season for them as the safeties and nickel backs.
