Central Arkansas blanks Nebraska-Kearney 31-0

Associated Press

CONWAY, Ark. -- Wynrick Smothers completed 22 passes for 177 yards and added a rushing touchdown as Central Arkansas routed Nebraska-Kearney 31-0 on Saturday.

A balanced offensive attack paced the Bears (3-3), while the defense forced two turnovers and held Nebraska-Kearney (1-5) to just 169 yards of total offense.

No player scored more than one touchdown for Bears, who used three quarterbacks, seven different rushers and twelve players caught a pass.

A field goal followed by a rushing touchdown from Smothers built an early 10-0 lead for Central Arkansas, and a pair of third-quarter touchdowns extended the lead to 24-0.

Courtney Whitehead led the Bears' receivers with five receptions for 83 yards.

The Bears earned their first shutout since 1992 with the victory, while Nebraska-Kearney faced off against a Division I opponent for the third time in school history.
