  UCA's top two receivers, junior Lujuan Winningham and sophomore Tyler Hudson combined for 105 receptions that went for 1,789 yards and 20 touchdowns a year ago. Both earned All-Southland Conference and underclassmen All-America honors. UCA played the entire 2019 season without two of its top performers. WR Brandon Myers, the top returning receiver for the Bears a year ago, dislocated his kneecap in the third practice of fall camp and missed the entire season. DB Jackie Harvell never recovered enough from achilles surgery in the spring and sat out the entire season. On top of that, WR Lujuan Winningham broke his arm in Game 8 vs. Sam Houston State. He was one of the top receivers in the nation at the time with 50 catches for 814 yards and 8 touchdowns. He returned for spot duty in the FCS Playoff game vs. Illinois State and still was named first-team All-Southland Conference. - Central Arkansas Football
