Game Recaps

Abilene Christian 56
Mesa State 12
(Predicted Score 38-24)

Billy Malone was picked off on ACU's first play from scrimmage, and Mark Gruner took it in for a TD and a quick 6-0 lead for Mesa State. From that point on, Malone and the ACU offense were almost flawless. Malone went 18-21 from that point on for 271 yds and 4 TDs. Johnny Knox was once again the main target, catching 5 passes for 118 yds and 3 TDs including a 75 yarder. Bernard Scott had 125 yds and 3 TDs on only 12 carries. Again it was most quick drives - of the 8 TD drives, only one took up more than 5 plays. The Wildcat defense had 11 tackles for loss, and 7 sacks, and limited the Mesas State offense to 229 yds and 1 TD. The win was the first NCAA playoff victory for ACU, and next week, they will attempt another first - a playoff road win.

gormacattack Recap

West Texas A&M 40
Washburn 39
The Buffs were slow to come out of the gates, turning the ball over 3 straight drives in the first quarter, and only able to gain 144 yds of offense. Washburn took a 14-0 lead into halftime, leaving some golden opportunities on the table. The second half...well that was a different story. WT's offense was able to gain 419 yds, and score 40 points and held on to defeat Washburn in a very hard fought, sometimes sloppily played ballgame. Keith Null hit 38-58 for 498 yds and 6 TDs, but also had 2 INTs. BJ Vickers came up huge with 6 catches for 148 yds and 3 TDs. Keithon Flemming had 128 all purpose yards, but did not score. WT had some problems with PATs, and it almost cost them the game. Eldon Grimslid led the Buffs with 13 tackles, and Brandon Swain had 3 sacks. For Washburn, Jordan Brill hit on 13 of 30 passes, but for 267 yds and 2 TDs. Mosely and Walker combined for 157 yds rushing. Jake LeBahn had 6 catches for 117 yds and TD.
