Week 4 CFN Fearless Prediction & Game Story - Central Arkansas at Arkansas State

Sept. 24 at Arkansas State 53 … Central Arkansas 24
CFN Analysis: ASU blew away the two bad teams on the schedule and got flattened by the two good teams on the slate. Now it's time to kick off Sun Belt play with a big start at WKU to show that it belongs in the mix of top conference teams. The offense was terrific, running for 375 yards and three scores with nine different players getting carries, and Ryan Aplin was great, completing 220 yards and a score, but it's not a plus to get six field goals out of kicker Brian Davis; too many drives stalled. It might have been a blowout, but it took a little while to get there.

(AP) JONESBORO, Ark. -- Brian Davis set two Sun Belt Conference kicking records Saturday with six field goals and 23 points, leading Arkansas State past Central Arkansas 53-24.

The Red Wolves (2-2) dominated Central Arkansas, an FCS program, in the teams' first meeting since 1997. They rolled up 646 yards of total offense and scored on nine of their 11 possessions, with Davis hitting field goals of 24, 32, 33, 34, 21 and 33 yards. Ryan Aplin threw for 220 yards, including an 11-yard touchdown to Taylor Stockemer, and added 84 yards on the ground.

The Red Wolves also got rushing scores from Jermaine Robertson, Dwayne Frampton and Andre Smith, plus a 31-yard interception return by Sterling Young.

Davis was one field goal short of tying the NCAA record.

Wynrick Smothers threw two touchdown passes for the Bears (1-3). Jackie Hinton ran for a score, and Eddie Camara kicked a 22-yard field goal.
