Storylines: While not 100 % win or go home, it is pretty close. Winning this game assures this program a 7th straight postseason appearance and a 5th straight appearance in the NCAA Division II Playoffs. The Lions are playing a team that will either be still licking their wounds from losing to Eastern New Mexico, or be full of rage and jumping at the chance to beat the Lions for second place in the LSC. The Rams lose, they are for sure out of the playoffs, if the Lions lose, they have an outside shot of still getting in. Either way, the Lions need to win this game and that is all there is to it. They can, and they should. There are a lot of reasons to believe in this team.

Keys to the game:

Offense: Kill clock and score to wear down ASU. Touchdowns. Miklo Smalls….this is his chance to show without a doubt he is the best QB in the Conference, and he has the line to protect him and the receivers and backs to get the ball to.

Defense: Make routine plays and prevent the big one. Tackle, no personal foul penalties, just play sound defense. Angelo is a good team so be ready to play.

Special Teams: Do your job. Good snaps, good holds, good coverage, good kicks. Do it over and over again.
