A two touchdown second quarter propelled the Huskies to a 21-13 halftime lead, and they scored the only points of the third quarter on a 43-yard pass from Chandler Harnish to Martel Moore. Harnish, who was out briefly with an injury sustained in the first half, went over 3,000 yards passing on the season on Sunday night.

As the third quarter was coming to a close, Arkansas State's Ryan Aplin was intercepted in Red Wolves territory, giving the Huskies a great opportunity to extend the lead to three scores.
