The Wonder Boys kept chugging along during their Saturday matchup against Southern Arkansas University, winning 44- 21 and improving to 4-0 for the first time in ten years.
Arsenio Favor continued to prove himself as a dual threat quarterback, scoring four rushing touchdowns and throwing for another. This is the first time a Tech player has rushed for four touchdowns in a single game since Justin Ray in 2007.
Brayden Stringer also had his share of ball carrying, as he compiled 115 yards on 16 carries.
Tech’s defense came up big again, despite allowing a total of 414 yards. Cua’ Rose, a freshman from McGehee, had 13 tackles and tallied two key interceptions.
Logan Genz, a senior from West Fork, also chipped in with 15 stops.
“It feels great,” Genz said. “It’s a big accomplishment in getting where we need to be. Everything we work for during the week is worth it when we win on Saturday. That keeps us motivated. We’re going to make sure Arkansas Tech is ready to play.”
Tech heads to Arkadelphia on Saturday to take on Henderson State at 2 p.m.
