LSC Scoop Power Poll and Week Seven Superlatives

  1. ACU (1) - Tough back and forth battle with Wildcats coming out on top.
  2. WTAM (2) - Buffs stampede Texans again.
  3. TAMK (4) - Bounce back win on the road.
  4. MSU (3) - Slugged it out with the Wildcats, but came up just a bit short.
  5. ASU (5) - Third straight close loss.  Can Rams rebound to close out strong?
  6. NSU (9) - Huge homecoming win over TAMC puts NSU in the LSC North drivers seat.
  7. ENMU (7) - Does big win over UCO make the North a two team race?
  8. UIW (10) - Three 4th quarter TDs covered a total of 91 yards.
  9. UCO (6) - Young Bronchos outscored 28-7 in second half.
  10. TAMC (8) - Margin of defeat (not the loss itself) surprising.
  11. SOSU (12) - Had to gut out 2OT win over SWO at home.
  12. TSU (11) - Had no answers for WT, two late scores mask a bit of the domination.
  13. ECU (13) - Turnovers and poor field positon  in fourth cost Tigers.
  14. SWO (14) - Gave Savage Storm all they could handle at home.
