So, this is what is at stake. We have a SHARE of the conference title, but this would give us the entire bag of marbles. It would also give us a quality opponent before having to probably play Angelo State again in the end of season playoffs. MSU always puts together a quality team, and we have not won in Wichita Falls since 1998. A lot of things can happen with a win. MSU is not to be taken lightly, and do not think for one second that they are a pushover. They want to beat us. They want a shot at the LSC playoff and to have a chance to take the top 3 down. They have a lot to play for.
Injury report looks good so far. Tuaa continues to get better, and Rollison looked great last week. I have not heard much about Gage Windsor, but I expect to see him in uniform. Not a bad report all things considered.
Passing Fancy: MSU has the best defense from a statistical standpoint in the conference as far as scoring. They also defend well against the pass. Rollison and the crew have to bring their A-Game against a good team. Get ahead and keep the foot on the gas.
Overtime-Run vs. Pass-Expect to see a very balanced run to pass ration from the Mustangs in this. MSU is one of the very few pro style teams left. Expect to see them be able to do both, but the key for the Lions will be stopping the run. If that happens, MSU must rely on a guy who is completing barely 50 percent of his passes. Stopping the run will be key again, and letting the secondary play physical by jamming REC’s and putting pressure on the snaps.
