ACU needs offense to step up vs. A&M-Kingsville
The Abilene Christian offense did something last week no other Wildcats football team had done since 2001 — and that’s fail to score a touchdown. The Wildcats managed just two field goals in a 13-6 loss to Tarleton State in Stephenville, dropping their second straight Lone Star Conference game.
It certainly was a low point for Ken Collums, ACU’s fifth-year offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach. Since Collums and head coach Chris Thomsen took over the program in 2005, the Wildcats had averaged 41.5 points a game going into this season.
ACU preview: Resurgent Kingsville big challenge for 'Cats
What’s riding on this game: Kingsville shares the Lone Star Conference lead with Tarleton State with two games left in conference play. The Javelinas haven’t won the title since nabbing a fourth-straight in 2004. Kingsville has won more LSC titles (26) than any other football team in the league. ACU, the defending LSC champs, is a game back, tied with Angelo State and Midwestern for second place. More importantly, both teams probably must win their last two games to make the playoffs. Kingsville is ranked No. 5 in the NCAA Super Regional Four poll and ACU is No. 7. The top six advance in the final poll advance to the playoffs. ACU also had Midwestern State, ranked No. 4 in the region, left on the schedule, so they still control their own fate.
Playoff berth on line as Javelinas meet Abilene Christian
.KINGSVILLE — The prize package is still wrapped and sitting a couple of weeks down the road. But there will be some bloodied hopes and mangled dreams before the Lone Star Conference football championship is awarded and the door to the NCAA Division II playoffs is opened.
“The playoffs have begun for a lot of people,” Texas A&M-Kingsville coach Bo Atterberry deadpanned.
COLLEGE FOOTBALL: ASU seniors to leave on a winning note
SAN ANGELO, Texas — Nine Angelo State University seniors will play their final game at San Angelo Stadium tonight when the Rams host No. 7 Tarleton State.
They will leave with the experience that none of the previous three ASU senior classes had — a winning season. Even if the Rams lose their final two games, they will finish the year with a 6-5 record — one more win than the previous two seasons combined and just two less than the previous three years.
Of the nine seniors, seven of them are defensive players while two play on offense. Here is a little of what each one has contributed to ASU during their tenure.
Mustangs to face Greyhounds' fast-paced offense
Teams in the Lone Star Conference used to hate to have to play Eastern New Mexico because the Greyhounds were the only wishbone team in the conference, which meant extra preparation for an offense you only faced once a year.
Two years later the wishbone is long gone, but that doesn’t mean the Greyhounds are any easier to prepare for.
Kickoff for tonight’s Lone Star Conference South matchup between the Midwestern State Mustangs (7-2, 2-2) and the Greyhounds (2-7, 0-5) is set for 8 p.m. in Greyhound Stadium at Blackwater Draw.
