SEARCY, Ark. (ATU) -- Harding Bisons defeat Arkansas Tech Wonder Boys' to snap win streak at four.
Tanner Marsh passed for 253 yards and two touchdowns, connecting with 11 different receivers, but the Arkansas Tech Wonder Boys (5-4, 3-3 Great American Conference) were unable to contain the offensive attack of the No. 19 Harding Bisons (7-1, 5-1 GAC), as the Bisons topped the Wonder Boys 76-23 on Saturday at First Security Field.
The Bisons scored the game's first 34 points before the Wonder Boys were able to get on the board. The Wonder Boys broke through in the second quarter, when Tanner Marsh connected with James Jackson on a 14-yard touchdown strike, capping a nine-play, 72-yarddrive that spanned 4:13.
Tech cut the Harding lead to 34-9 on a 22-yard field goal by Trevor Pinkston on its subsequent possession, and then forced a turnover and put another seven points on the board behind a six-yard touchdown run by Tavadrick Lee, cutting the Tech deficit to 34-16.
However, the high-powered Bisons offense was able to keep the Wonder Boys off balance, and Tech was unable to narrow the gap further as Harding got back on track offensively.
The Wonder Boys will return to action on Saturday, Nov. 3, hosting a Senior Day tilt against the East Central Tigers. Kickoff from Thone Stadium at Buerkle Field is set for 2 p.m.
