Game Day Roundup and Predictions

For some reason, the original prediction post was lost in cyberspace, so here is a condensed version, along with local newspaper articles.

MSU aiming for balance - J. Scott Russell, Times Record News
ACU takes on defending champ - Joey Richards, Abilene Reporter News
WT's Carthel hasn't forgetten ENMU ties - Mark Haslett, Amarillo Globe News
WT preps for Wagon Wheel game - Mark Haslett, Amarillo Globe News
Javelinas remain focused despite disappointments - George Vondracek, Corpus Christi Caller Times
No place like home- Paul Harris, San Angelo Standard Times

McMurry at Incarnate Word
Interesting matchup of an LSC team on the way out, against a rumored to be future LSC team.  The last time McMurry played in San Antonio, they shocked UTSA in the Alamodome.  UIW is playing some defense this year, and should take this one.  UIW 21-17.

Texas A&M-Kingsville at Tarleton State  
matchup of two teams that have not quite lived up to expectations.  Whoever makes the least mistakes should take this one.  Homefield advantage goes to Tarleton.  Texans win 28-24.

Texas A&M-Commerce at Angelo State  
The Lions are not going to go winless this year, but it could be another one win campaign.  Angelo State may or may not be about to turn the corner.  They took MSU down to the wire last week, and need to avoid a letdown against the Lions.  ASU 35-14.

West Texas A&M at Eastern New Mexico
There have been some really spirited battles in this rivalry, but there is nothing other than pride to suggest that this year bring more of the same.  The Buffaloes have just looked like a team that should roll through this one.  WTAM 45-14.

Game of the Week
Midwestern State at Abilene Christian
Not sure this is the homecoming matchup ACU wanted, but it is what it is. MSU is definitely more talented than the Wildcats, but ACU is the most opportunistic team in the LSC.  Mustangs keep the WT matchup important, MSU 42-24.
