Daily Football Roundup 11-10

No easy road for ACU in playoffs
The Abilene Christian University football team could see some familiar
faces in the playoffs.

The Wildcats, seeking their first national title since 1977 and first
in Division II, might have to go through West Texas A&M and Northwest
Missouri State to reach the Division II semifinals. ACU beat both those teams
earlier this season.

Purple paint motivates WT
Broderick Marshall, West Texas A&M's 6-foot-3, 285-pound nose tackle, said
the Buffs had a chip on their shoulder going into Saturday's game with Tarleton
State. Someone had spray-painted a purple TSU on a white buffalo statue on
campus. Must have made the team mad. Few people, if any, expected WT to trample the No. 19 Texans 51-0. This was a team with the most balanced offense in the
Lone Star Conference and the No. 2-rated defense. "We're peaking at the right
time," WT offensive lineman Webb said. It's difficult to say on which side of
the ball WT played better
