Late in the second half, Bears head coach Dana Ford noticed a look in the eyes of Keandre Cook that he hadn't seen dating back to the first day of summer practice.

It was something he felt was lacking for his program over the first month of the season. The look gave Ford the confidence that his senior was going to lead his team and make the big plays when needed.

When the Bears were down one in the final minute of Tuesday night's game against Murray State, the head coach didn't even draw up a play.
