    Sophomore QB the Engine Keeping the Train Moving

    The Bearkats are a different football team with sophomore Brian Bell at quarterback. That was evident Saturday when Bell returned to action against Stephen F. Austin.

    Bell was sidelined in last week’s win over UTSA due to concussion-like symptoms, but returned healthy against SFA. The young quarterback gave a solid performance, completing 16-of-23 passes for 214 yards and a pair of touchdowns in the Bearkats’ 45-10 blowout victory….
