Coffman Fights Off UA, 20-19, Earns Perfect Regular Season
Coffman held off a furious UA comeback to take the 20-19 win and seal a perfect regular season. After Coffman QB Gunnar Hoak hooked up with senior WR CJ Saunders for a 65-yd score on the first play, the Rocks looked like they might have a convincing win. However, the Golden Bears (5-5) forced 3 turnovers to help keep them close to the OCC-Central champs, including a forced fumble at their own 1 late in the 4th. UA drove the field in 3 minutes to score, but came up shy on the 2-pt conversion. Senior RB Dre Kendrick held the statistical spotlight in the game, dashing for 168 yards and a TD for Coffman. The Rocks (10-0, 7-0) host Davidson in a rivalry rematch in Week 11. The loss ended Upper Arlington's season at 5-5.
