Post Game recaps

We will post other updates if they are not too late

Javs Upset No. 9 ACU 16-13
Kingsville football team will find itself climbing further up the NCAA DII rankings this week as the Javelinas (2-0) snapped an 8-game losing streak to Abilene Christian with a 16-13 victory over the 9th-ranked Wildcats.
 
Down 6-0, the Javelina defense spurred the comeback from 6-0 down with a stifling defensive effort allowing just 224 total yards in the game. They allowed just three yards of offense and no first downs to the Wildcats in the second and third quarters.

#24 Javelinas shut down #9 ACU to take 16-13 win at Shotwell
ABILENE – Matt Stoll kicked three field goals, Nate Poppell threw for 372 yards and defensive-minded Texas A&M-Kingsville held off No. 9 Abilene Christian University, 16-13, on Saturday night at Shotwell Stadium.

The No. 24 Javelinas improved to 2-0 on the season, and 1-0 in the Lone Star Conference South Division, while ACU fell to 1-1 and 0-1 in the LSC. The win ended ACU's eight-year winning streak in the 47-year series, which Kingsville dominated from 1984-2003, and snapped the Wildcats' 12-game regular season home winning streak.

Kingsville's fierce defense held preseason NCAA Division II player of the year Mitchell Gale to his lowest output in three years, and broke a stretch of 23 straight games in which he had thrown a touchdown. Gale, a senior, completed 13 of 31 passes for 137 yards. After scoring 51 points in its season-opener last week against McMurry, ACU could only muster 11 first downs and 224 yards of offense against the Javelinas.

A&M-COMMERCE HOLDS ITS OWN, FALLING 27-16 AT UT-SAN ANTONIO

SAN ANTONIO, Texas – A&M-Commerce's first-ever game against a Division I FBS opponent is one that will be remembered for quite a while as the Lions gave UT-San Antonio a fight, rallying in the second half before falling to the Roadrunners 27-16 at the Alamodome.
"We played well at times, and I think we proved to ourselves a little bit that if we play the way we're capable of, we can compete with anyone," said head coach Guy Morriss. "We made some mistakes and that inconsistency is what cost us. We played much better in the second half, holding them to just three points. I think we did some things well today, so now we just have to improve on those moving forward."
