Mustangs stay unbeaten, take down No. 6 Angelo State, 29-20
 No. 20-ranked Midwestern State displayed more of its mettle Saturday night taking down No. 6 Angelo State 29-20 at LeGrand Stadium at First Community Credit Union Field.

The Mustangs improved to 5-0 for the sixth time in program history and first since 2011, while taking a leg up in the race for the Lone Star Conference championship moving to 3-0.

MSU was already without injured senior linebacker Daniel Laudermilk, then lost reigning LSC Offensive Player of the Week Hagen Hutchinson with an apparent leg injury in the first quarter.

But junior Adam Hill moved over to the mike linebacker position and produced an interception which he returned 77 yards to thwart Angelo State's opening possession...Complete Release
