Tarleton State holds of late Central Arkansas rally in 25-23 win

CONWAY, Ark. (AP) - Kayvon Britten ran for 156 yards on 22 carries and scored twice and Tarleton State beat Central Arkansas 25-23 on Saturday.

Will McElvain threw a 3-yard scoring pass to Jordan Owens for Central Arkansas (5-3, 2-1) that capped the scoring with 14 seconds left.

It was McElvain's third scoring pass, second to Owens, and concluded a 10-play, 72-yard scoring drive that lasted 1:45. McElvain complete 6-of-8 passes for 63 yards on the drive. A 15-yard face-mask penalty by the Bears helped aid the drive.
