Florence, Ala. (WHNT) - Perhaps no Lion fan thought the UNA defense would be one of its strengths. After all they did give up 61 points in its first two contests.
Then, something changed.
In the last four games, UNA has given up 28 points, including two shutouts. While North Alabama always thought it would be a work in progress because of its youth, starting three true freshmen, they never wanted to use that as an excuse.
