No. 13 Mustangs ground Falcons 76-21 on Homecoming

No. 13 Midwestern State didn't leave any suspense in another Homecoming blowout rolling UT Permian Basin 76-21 in front of 8,772 fans Saturday night at Memorial Stadium.

The Mustangs' scoring output was the second most in school history falling just shy of the record mark of 82 set at Western New Mexico during the 2001 season.

It was also the second biggest Homecoming stuffing paling only to a 73-6 rout of Texas A&M-Kingsville on Oct. 20, 2007. It's also MSU's eighth consecutive victory on Homecoming as the Mustangs improved to 7-1 on the season and 6-1 in league play.

MSU can clinch a share of its fourth Lone Star Conference championship with wins in the final two weeks beginning Saturday at Tarleton State and the following week in its regular season finale against Eastern New Mexico at Memorial Stadium...Complete Release


No. 8 Lions roll to 36-0 shutout of WT on Homecoming

In front of a Memorial Stadium-record crowd of 9,629 fans for Homecoming, the No. 8 Texas A&M-Commerce football team shut out conference foe West Texas A&M 36-0 on Saturday. The Lions forced six turnovers, returning two interceptions for touchdowns.

The Lions shutout the Buffs for the first time since 1996 to run their record to 7-1 on the season and 6-1 in the Lone Star Conference. WT drops to 5-4 on the season and 4-3 in the LSC.

The Lions next head to Odessa to take on UT Permian Basin on Saturday. The game starts at 7 p.m. at Ratliff Stadium...Complete Release


Big fourth quarter leads to win, keeps title hopes alive for Tarleton

The Texans remain in control of their own destiny for a share of the Lone Star Conference championship after stifling Oklahoma Panhandle State in a 45-26 win Saturday afternoon.

Tarleton snapped a streak of 11 consecutive quarters without a rushing touchdown by getting one apiece from Joseph Sadler and Jabari Anderson in the fourth quarter before Basil Jackson's second pick six of the season capped off a 21-point fourth quarter and a 45-26 victory for the Texans.

With the win, Tarleton moves to 5-2 in league play with games against Midwestern State and Texas A&M-Commerce left on the schedule. MSU and A&M-C sit atop the league standings with identical 5-1 records in Lone Star Conference play and 6-1 records overall...Complete Release

Mustangs Ride Dominant Defense to Win Over Angelo State

The Western New Mexico football team benefited from a stingy defense all day long as they limited Angelo State to just 276 yards and forced four turnovers on their way to claiming a 20-14 Lone Star Conference victory Saturday afternoon.

The win for WNMU (3-6, 3-4 LSC) snaps a four-game slide and moves them within a game of being .500 in the conference standings.

The defense made big plays early top help give the Mustangs momentum and a lead they wouldn't relinquish. Following a three-and-out to start the contest, the WNMU offense went right to work. After a big offside penalty kept the drive alive, senior Javia Hal  found sophomore Henry Norman twice on the drive, with the last being a 19-yard strike for the touchdown and a 7-0 lead nearly five minutes into the game...Complete Release

Game Previews

Angelo State at Western New Mexico
Let's just forget last week.  The Rams trailed at the half 20-14, but then gave up 28 second half points when their defense wasn't even on the field, on the way to a 62-14 loss to Texas A&M-Commerce.  The Mustangs trailed Fort Lewis 17-14 at the break, but three turnovers led to three TDs over a nine minute stretch, and WNMU was outscored 35-0 in the second half, losing 52-14 to their former RMAC rivals.  Okay, now forget it.

Javia Hall has played much better against LSC teams, compiling an 18-7 TD-Int ratio, while just 2-4 outside of the conference.  The key to the game will be how well the Rams run the ball.  WNMU is allowing 243 rushing yards in LSC games.  Rams control the clock and keep WNMU offense off the field, ASU 28-24


Tarleton State at Oklahoma Panhandle State
After 30 minutes you could not have asked for more if you were a Texan fan, up 17-0 and shutting down an explosive Texas A&M-Kingsville offense, with Zed Woerner having a great game.  The next 30 minutes were a nightmare, with the Javelinas totally shutting down TSU's offense (48 yards, 0 in the fourth quarter), and Woerner was running for his life, getting sacked at will.  The Aggies, on the other hand enjoyed their trip to Midland, getting their first LSC win, and Shane Truelove completing 40-49 passes for 610 yards.

While the offenses will get most of the attention, look for Tarleton's pass rush to get to Truelove enough to disrupt the Aggies.  TSU 45-35


West Texas A&M at Texas A&M-Commerce
The Buffaloes have certainly been fun to follow this year.  They have been really good at times, giving MSU their only loss this year, but also inconsistent, losing to ENMU and TAMK when they basically disappeared for large chunks of those games.  Ben Arbuckle has been lights out since stepping in for the injured Ethan Brinkley, completing 67% of his passes for more than 800 yards and 13 TDs (just 2 Ints) in about 2.5 games.  That's helped open things up for the ground game and Devon Paye.  Meanwhile for the Lions, the loss to MSU three weeks ago may have just been the wake up call they needed.  They totally dismantled Angelo State last week, with the all facets of the game contributing.  Richard Cooper and Luis Perez top the LSC statistical charts and the team is plus 12 in turnover margin.

If having a talent edge isn't enough, there are probably still some hard feelings toward WT from certain TAMC personnel (and probably always will be).  TAMC 42-24


Eastern New Mexico at Texas A&M-Kingsville
The Greyhounds have running the ball as expected, averaging 335 yards per game, despite Kamal Cass being limited by injury the last few weeks.  Across the line, the Javelinas lead the LSC in rushing defense, giving up just 83 yards per game and just 2.5 per carry.  Even adding in the negative yards for sacks, and they are allowing just 110.  Wyatt Strand can hurt you passing the ball if the opportunity, in fact he had back to back games of 260 yards against UTPB and TSU.  The Javelinas are more balanced on offense, running for 118 and throwing for 237.  Myles Carr has a 20-5 TD-Int ratio, and has thrown TD passes to 8 different receivers.  Watch for TE Stehley Reden who has 7 receptions for 160 yards and 3 TDs over the last three weeks.

The Greyhounds have won once in Javelina Stadium (2014), but this isn't the same caliber Javelina team.  Hogs give yards, but get enough stops to eke out a 38-35 win.


UT-Permian Basin at Midwestern State
The Falcons had their best shot at their first LSC win, pulling to within 4 points on three different occasions in the second half, but could not get a stop for 5 consecutive OPSU possessions.  The offense had fun (503 yards, 44 points), but the defense was overmatched, giving up 750 yards.  The Mustangs played with fire one too many times, and were unable to pull out another last minute win in Canyon.  The Mustangs fell behind 21-0 in the first half, but scored the next 24 points, to take the lead with under a minute to play in the third quarter.  But a quick 74 yard TD run and a game clinching 11 play 78 yard game clinching drive by WT handed MSU their first loss of the season.  Quade Coward completed just 3 of his last 12 passes on MSU's final two possessions.

The Mustangs can forget last week, and just enjoy a comfortable win over the Falcons. MSU 45-10
