Southwestern Assemblies of God University (SAGU) Football hosted Arizona Christian University (ACU) in a showdown that featured a rematch of a thriller that happened in October between the two, which saw ACU taking home a victory 41-37. In this matchup the Lions came out fired up; their first drive of the game resulted in a touchdown as Jordan Barlow connected on a 44-yard pass to Zachariah Johnson. The Lions would take this 7-0 lead into the second quarter, but 13 unanswered points by ACU put them ahead 13-7 going into halftime. The second half was packed with entertainment as both teams traded points and stops, but the turning point came in the fourth quarter. The Lions were able to rattle off 10 straight points to tie things up 20-20; Jordan Barlow's scramble and 15-yard passing touchdown to Jamal Long was a sight to see as Long tip-toed to score the game tying touchdown. With just under a minute left, ACU had the ball and started their drive deep in their territory, a tough penalty from SAGU put ACU in Field Goal range; the last second kick from ACU sailed through, with a final score of 23-20. .
