The Bengals (3-3, 1-2 Big Sky) rolled up 532 total yards on the Bears (1-6, 0-3) to get their first conference victory in two years. Luke Austin was Arias' favorite target, snagging 8 catches for 173 yards and three touchdowns. Xavier Finney provided support on the ground, rushing for 146 yards and a touchdown.
