Mustangs roll past seventh-ranked Javelinas
Zack Eskridge was almost perfect Saturday night at Memorial Stadium for the Midwestern State Mustangs. As a result, the seventh-ranked Texas A&M-Kingsville Javelinas are no longer perfect.
The Mustangs’ quarterback completed his first 18 passes, threw for two touchdowns and ran for one as No. 22 Midwestern State knocked off the previously undefeated Javelinas 38-7. MSU is now 6-2 for the season and 2-2 in the Lone Star Conference South, while the Javelinas fall to 7-1 and 3-1.
Buffs upset No. 1 Wildcats with second-half rally
Abilene Christian’s stay at the top didn’t last very long.
Keithon Flemming — the guy wearing No. 1 — scored four touchdowns, including two in the final 7:49 of the game — to lift the West Texas A&M Buffaloes to a 32-21 victory over the unbeaten and No. 1-ranked ACU Wildcats in a Lone Star Conference game Saturday at Shotwell Stadium.
Flemming just returned to the Buffs’ lineup a week earlier after dislocating an elbow in a scrimmage before the season opener and missing six games. The 6-foot, 210-pound senior running back ran for touchdowns of 1 and 4 yards, and he also caught touchdown passes of 8 and 6 yards.
Serious stunner: West Texas A&M 32, Abilene Christian 21
Buffs pull off upset of top-ranked Wildcats
ABILENE - West Texas A&M entered Shotwell Stadium on Saturday against an old tormentor that was ranked No. 1 in Division II.
But by the time WT was through with Abilene Christian University, the Buffs left the stadium with one of their biggest victories.
Appropriately, in his second game back from an elbow injury, Keithon Flemming, listed first numerically on WT's roster, led the way. Evidence of how Flemming can transform an offense came from his scoring all four touchdowns for the Buffs, two running and two receiving, to lead WT to a 32-21 shocker over Abilene Christian in a Lone Star Conference contest.
Rams clinch winning season over SOSU
The Angelo State University football team defeated Southeastern Oklahoma State 42-30 Saturday in Durant, Okla., clinching its first winning season since 2005 and staying in the chase for the Lone Star Conference championship and an NCAA Division II playoff berth.
ASU improved to 6-2 overall and 5-2 in the LSC. SOSU fell to 5-3 and 3-3.
Calvin Fance had five of ASU’s seven sacks on the day and quarterback Josh Neiswander passed for 341 yards and three touchdowns as the Rams defeated the Savage Storm for just the second time in the six-game history between the two teams.
