Game Recaps
No. 8 Lions claim third consecutive LSC championship after 30-10 win over Tarleton State

The No. 8 Texas A&M-Commerce football team clinched its third consecutive Lone Star Conference championship after defeating Tarleton State University 30-10 on Saturday. After falling behind early, the Lions ran away with the game in the second half.

The win pushes A&M-Commerce to 9-1 on the season and 8-1 in the conference. With a Midwestern State loss, the Lions won the conference title outright. TSU falls to 5-6 and 5-4 in the Lone Star Conference.

The Lions now look toward the NCAA Division II Playoffs and will likely host a game in the first round of the NCAA Division II Playoffs. Their seeding and opponent will be announced Sunday as part of the NCAA selection show, which begins at 4 p.m.

Quarterback Luis Perez finished the game 22-of-35 for 274 yards and a touchdown.

Shawn Hooks returned a punt 70 yards for a touchdown in the game. It is his third punt return for a touchdown on the season. The touchdown moves him into the lead for most punt return touchdowns across all four divisions of NCAA football...Complete Release

Last Minute Heroics Vault Gridiron Hounds Past #12 Mustangs

It seemed as if No. 12 Midwestern State had relied on a previous script, when they rallied from a 10-point, fourth-quarter deficit to seize a 28-24 lead with just 52 seconds left in regulation.

The Eastern New Mexico football team had other ideas, and responded with a seven-play, 70-yard drive, capped by Aaron Johnson's 19-yard touchdown reception on the game's final play, to upend the Mustangs, 30-28, in Lone Star Conference action at Memorial Stadium...Complete Release

Trickery Highlights Sixth Straight Win for Gridiron Hogs

How many times do you head to a stadium and see an offensive lineman celebrating a touchdown, two safeties, a pick-six, an onside kick recovered by the kicker and the punter throwing a 24-yard spiral for a first down on fourth down? If you made the long trek to Carl Wooten Field at No Man's Land Stadium, you saw all of those things as Texas A&M-Kingsville went deep into its playbook to earn its sixth consecutive victory, a 53-39 win over Oklahoma Panhandle State Saturday afternoon.

With the win, the Javelinas (8-3, 6-3 LSC) clinched at least a share of third place in the Lone Star Conference after being selected to finish sixth in the preseason poll. The win streak is the longest since 2010.

Points came in bunches for the Hogs but the Aggies (2-9, 1-8 LSC)  stormed back in the fourth to make it a close one before A&M-Kingsville put the closing touches on its best season since 2010...Complete Release

Miraculous Comeback Lifts Buffs to 37-30 Victory in Overtime at Western New Mexico

Down 30-16 with 2:04 left, the West Texas A&M football team scored 14 points in a matter of 1:28 to tie the game and then scored a touchdown in overtime, while getting an interception to seal the win in a thrilling 37-30 victory at Western New Mexico Saturday afternoon.  

With the win, WT ended the regular season at 6-5 and 5-4 in Lone Star Conference play, while WNMU fell to 3-8 and 3-6 in league play.   

Junior quarterback Ethan Brinkley, who played the entire second half and overtime, got a big completion to junior JaQuarius Daniels for 19 yards and found senior Devon Paye out of the backfield for 33 yards to the WNMU 30 as the Buffs began the comeback.  Paye again came up huge with another catch for 25 yards to the WNMU five and the duo hooked up for a two-yard touchdown strike and a 30-23 deficit with 42 seconds left.

Senior kicker Conner Hollabaugh placed a perfect onside kick as it was recovered by the Buffs at the WT 46.  Brinkley hit junior wide receiver Junior Pome'e for 13 yards and found senior Chris Gilchrist for 41-yard touchdown pass with 26 seconds left in the fourth quarter...Complete Release

Rams Roll to 70-21 Win Against UTPB

The Angelo State football team was in an offensive rhythm Saturday night, topping UTPB 70-21 at LeGrand Stadium at First Community Credit Union Field in its season finale.

The 70 points in one game was the most in program history for the Rams (5-6, 4-5 LSC), breaking a record set in 1993 when ASU outscored Fort Lewis 69-0. The Rams also recorded their longest passing play ever in the game, when quarterback Jake Faber hit Mark Munson on the sideline and Munson ran the rest of the way for a 99-yard touchdown reception.

The Rams did it through the air and on the ground offensively in the game, gaining 322 yards passing and 258 with the run, while scoring six touchdowns passing and four rushing...Complete Release
