The football team lost its second game in Wildcat stadium to Stephen F. Austin by a final score of 20-10.
ACU Football drops to 1-3 overall and 1-1 in conference, while SFA improves to 2-2 overall and 2-0 in conference.
Head coach Adam Dorrel said his team wasn’t its usual self tonight.
“It’s very disappointing, we did things tonight that we haven’t done all year and that includes playing two FBS football teams,” Dorrel said. “There’s some things that happen on the sidelines and different situations that were extremely frustrating to me as a head football coach.”
Junior quarterback Dallas Sealey threw for 179 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions. Senior wide receiver Troy Grant earned 81 receiving yards, while sophomore wide receiver Josh Fink added 41 yards and a touchdown.
Sophomore safety Bolu Onifade and senior linebacker Sam Denmark lead the defense tonight with 13 tackles each. Onifade also earned a tackle for a loss and Denmark got half a tackle for a loss.
SFA spread the ball out statistically, partially because starting QB Foster Sawyer went out with an injury in the second quarter and was replaced by Jake Blumrick. Foster threw for 113 yards and a touchdown while Sawyer threw for 110 yards.
Four different players had 38 yards of rushing or more for the Lumberjacks and running back Jamall Shaw ran for the most with 69. Wide receiver Frank Iheanacho was leader through the air for SFA finishing with 58 yards and a touchdown.
The Wildcats gained a total of 328 yard in the game, while the Lumberjacks put up 414.
Dorrel said he hopes to see his team bounce back.
“If our seniors can come in here and be upset in a positive way,” Dorrel said. “If our seniors will come in and rally everyone up though, then we’ll be ready to rumble next week.”
The Wildcats hit the road next for San Antonio to face rival school Incarnate Word at 6 p.m. Saturday.
