LSC Week 3 Roundup

Please keep Robert Grays in your prayers

LSC Scoop Football Power Poll



  1. Texas A&M-Commerce - Lions with 7 TDs on first 8 possessions, a machine-like performance
  2. Midwestern State - Mustangs jump out to 21-0 lead and cruise home 35-13 over the Javelinas
The next four are virtually tied at this point, with little to nothing to separate them.
  • Angelo State - dominated everywhere but turnovers and more importantly, the scoreboard
  • Eastern New Mexico - simply could not keep pace with TAMC
  • West Texas A&M - head scratcher after last week - outgained by UTPB, just 222 yds offense
  • Tarleton State - 5 turnovers + blocked punt = 20 pts = WIN
     7. Texas A&M-Kingsville - could not overcome 21-0 deficit or RZ woes (6 pts vs. 28 for MSU)
     8. Western New Mexico - 5 Mustang turnovers led to 35 WOU points
     9. UT-Permian Basin - closest to an LSC yet for Falcons
