ASU Midweek – Surging Texans arrive on a roll
SAN ANGELO, Texas — In the jumbled mess that the Lone Star Conference South Division has become, the No. 7 Tarleton State University football team finds itself right where it expected to be when the season began.
After opening divisional play with a loss to now-No. 9 Texas A&M-Kingsville, the Texans have won three straight including wins against ranked opponents Midwestern State three weeks ago and former No. 1 Abilene Christian last Saturday.
“ACU did a tremendous job,” TSU coach Sam McElroy said. “They got after us on the defensive side of the ball. We were fortunate to hit one big play. Sometimes in a game like this, that’s what it comes down to. A classic Tarleton-ACU game.”
Flemming leads WT's resurgence
A big chunk of the West Texas A&M offense was missing the first six games when senior running back Keithon Flemming went down with a dislocated left elbow in the team's final scrimmage in August.
The Buffs skidded to a 1-5 record, and could have finished the season with all the enthusiasm of a coaches' midweek film session. But rather than taking the rest of the season off, the Buffs have reeled off three straight wins - all coming since Flemming's return Oct. 10 - and could claim a share of the Lone Star Conference South Division title
