LSC Week 6 Roundup

We had some computer issues last week, which prevented us from posting.  We apologize for the interruption.

#24 Strong

LSC Scoop Power Poll (Last week in parentheses)
  1. Midwestern State (2) - Mustangs have defeated TAMC 6 of their last 7 games, so you can't call it an upset despite the polls.
  2. Texas A&M Commerce (1) - 26 point fourth quarter deficit too much to overcome at MSU.
  3. Eastern New Mexico (3) - Hounds able to overcome miscues, hold off pesky UTPB.
  4. Angelo State (4) - Probably glad to have night off on crazy Saturday.
  5. Tarleton State (5) - Did not get all the bounces this week. 
  6. Texas A&M-Kingsville (7) - Finally played like we thought they could.
  7. West Texas A&M (6) - That Colorado State-Pueblo game seems like eons in the past.
  8. UT-Permian Basin (8) - another step forward for the Falcons.
  9. Western New Mexico (9) - Defense !?!?! led the way against Texans.

The top two are head and shoulders above the rest of the LSC, ENMU is not too far behind, but rest of league is very tightly bunched. Should see some separation in the next couple of weeks.
