Arkansas State tops BSU in bowl
MOBILE, Ala. (AP) — Allen Muse caught a 13-yard touchdown pass from backup quarterback Fredi Knighten with 32 seconds remaining to lift Arkansas State past Ball State 23-20 at the GoDaddy Bowl on Sunday night.
Ball State had a chance to tie at the end of regulation, but Scott Secor’s 38-yard field goal attempt was blocked as time expired.
Arkansas State (8-5) won the GoDaddy Bowl for a second straight season, despite losing starting quarterback Adam Kennedy to a knee injury in the second quarter. It was the Red Wolves’ third straight trip to Mobile.
Knighten had 115 yards passing and 97 yards rushing. Muse, who considered quitting football following his father’s suicide, wound up with the biggest catch of the night just five plays Ball State took a four-point lead that looked as if it could have held up.
Ball State (10-3) went ahead 20-16 with 1:33 remaining on a 1-yard touchdown run by Jahwan Edwards, but couldn’t hold the lead. Edwards finished with a game-high 146 yards rushing.
