Best Overall Team Performance - Northeastern State
The Riverhawks sent shock waves across the LSC, upsetting Tarleton State 31-23.  Two Drew Patton field goals and a Trey McVay TD reception staked NSU to a 14-0 lead.  They stretched that advantage to 24-7 early in the fourth quarter, and after the Texans cut the margin to 8, returned a kickoff for their final TD of the evening.

Best Team Offensive Performance - Midwestern State
The Mustangs blitzed an overmatched NMHU defense for 581 yards and 52 points.  MSU averaged 8 yards per carry, piling up 352 rushing yards, added 229 through the air and punted just once.

Best Team Defensive Performance - Texas A&M-Kingsville
The Javelinas limited the #1 and defending champion Northwest Missouri Bearcats to 194 yards of offense and a single touchdown.  NWMSU could must just 49 yards rushing and 145 through the air.  The Javelinas sacked QB Blake Bolles seven times and limited NWMSU to just 3 plays on more than half (6 of 11) of their possessions.

Best Individual Offensive Performance - Josh Neiswander, ASU
Josh Neiswander started the season strong, throwing for 349 yards and 5 TDs to lead Angelo State to a win over Eastern New Mexico.  Trailing by 4 with 2:23 to play, Neiswander led the Rams 54 yards for the winning score, completing all four pass attempts for 41 yards, capping the drive off with a 9 yard pass to Tristan Carter.

Best Individual Defensive Performance - Matt Romig, TAMK
Matt Romig spearheaded the Javelina defense forcing a fumble and sacking QB Blake Bolles 3.5 times, with the biggest coming coming on a fourth down with under 30 seconds to play and NWMSU on the Javelina 39 yard line.

Best Individual Special Teams Performance - Nate Robinson, NSU
Moments after Tarleton State had pulled to within one score of the Riverhawks lead, Robinson took the ensuing kickoff 95 yards giving NSU a 31-16 with just under 7 minutes to play.
