The Bearcats came out in the second half and drove down the field for a score to make it 16-7. The Bearcats then forced a punt. The ball was downed on the punt at the BC 1-yard line and on the next play, RB A.J. Brown was tackled in the endzone for a safety, to make the score 18-7, B-L.

The Bearcats D came up with a big INT, returned to the B-L 31. From there, backup QB Reed Charpia – after a botched snap-  scrambled out of a sack and hit Dominick Byars for a 31-yard score. The Bearcats got the 2-pt. Conversion on a run by Charles Balkcom. That made the score 18-15.

With momentum on its side, BC picked off another pass and returned it to the B-L 34. But the B-L defense broke through the BC offensive line on every play, and the Bearcats offense went backward, eventually turning the ball over on downs with 1:41 to play in the fourth quarter.
