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.

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

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
