Tied at 28 with 2:40 left in the game, LC was faced with fourth-and-12 at the CV 37 and elected to punt, which resulted in a touchback.
CV quarterback Matt Gabbert hit Carsen Raab for 21 yards out to midfield and Carter Childress for 12 more down to the LC 30. Chad Carlson took a swing pass to the 11 and then ran for 7 yards to the 4, where the Bears (4-0, 2-0) set up for the game-winner by Rehkow.
Gabbert went 21 of 30 for 296 yards with three touchdown passes –all to Raab, who finished with five catches for 121 yards. Gabbert added a 1-yard TD run.
LC (1-3, 0-2) was led by Keani Guthmueller, who rushed for 62 yards and two TDs and caught eight passes for 107 yards and two more scores.
CV took the opening kickoff and marched into LC territory. On a third-and-9 at the Tigers’ 37, Gabbert hit Raab on a seam route for an early touchdown pass. LC took its first possession 83 yards on 11 plays, including a 35-yard pass play to Guthmueller, to even it up on a 3-yards swing pass to Guthmueller.
Guthmueller brought a punt back into CV territory and seven plays later he pounded it into the end zone form 4 yards out to put LC up 14-7 at the start of the second quarter.
On the next possession, Jace Parbon found Guthmueller on a fly route for a 45-yard touchdown pass and 21-7 lead with 9:37 left in the half. With time winding down before intermission, Stephan Cox picked off Gabbert at the LC 38 and the Tigers took a two-score lead into the break.
Midway through the third Gabbert hit Raab on a slant to trim the Bears deficit to 21-14.
The Bears defense forced a punt and six plays later Gabbert hit Raab on the outside for 13 yards and he dragged a defender into the end zone. LC’s Charles Avery blocked the extra point and the Tigers led 21-20 with 55 seconds left in the third.
LC responded. A third-and-8 pass from Parbon (17 of 28, 250 yards) went for 31 yards to Josh Bewick down to the 19, then Guthmueller took a sweep for an 8-yard score to put the Tigers back up 28-20 with 8:20 left.
But CV walked down the field, including an 18-yard pass to Kyle Parkman, and Gabbert scored on a 1-yard plunge. The two-point conversion from Gabbert to Raab was good to tie it with 5:06 to go.
