UCA plays Tenn.-Martin on Saturday

CONWAY (AP) - Central Arkansas will play Tennessee-Martin this weekend after playing before the third-largest crowd to ever see the Bears play.

UCA played at Colorado last weekend and led 24-17 going into the fourth quarter. The Buffaloes scored 21 straight points and won 38-24 before a crowd of 35,168. The only larger crowds to see UCA play were at Ole Miss in 2012 and Hawaii in 2009.

The Bears last played a game against Tennessee-Martin in 2007 and took a 14-point victory. They have an 8-4 record against the Skyhawks.

In the Colorado game, quarterback Wynrick Smothers had three interceptions for the first time in his career. He was 33 of 55 for 280 yards.
