  • Football's Fourth Quarter Comeback Falls Just Short
    October 21, 2017
    The Rockford University football team lost a heartbreaker on Saturday, 28-21 on the road to the Aurora University Spartans. Although the Regents came up short on the scoreboard, there were numerous positive takeaways from the game. Rockford threw for a season-high 220 yards, which was twice as many passing yards as Aurora. The Regents also possessed the ball for a season-high 33:57, while running a season-high 79 offensive plays. Both of those numbers dwarfed the Spartan's 26:03 of time of possession and 58 total plays. However the difference ultimately was Aurora's ability to create big plays and force turnovers. Rockford turned the ball over in Aurora's territory three times as well as turning the ball over on downs inside the Spartan 10-yard line.
