Last Time Versus Sul Ross State
The two teams put on an offensive showcase as they combined for an NCAA all-levels record 1714 yards and set 40 NCAA, American Southwest and school records. Logan Turner set the HSU record with 685 yards passing and also had a school and conference-record eight touchdowns. HSU’s 914 yards were the most yards ever in a game by a single team in Division III. HSU led the game 42-7 at halftime before Sul Ross State scored 35 points in the third quarter to inch back into the game and let the Cowboys’ restart the offensive attack. Turner only had 24 completions, but the Cowboys averaged
28.5 yards per completion. Devin Carver ran for 192 yards and three touchdowns , Bryce Johnson had 213 yards receiving and Jessie Ramos had five catches for 133 yards and three touchdowns. Six different Cowboys had TD receptions.
The Cowboys will return home for the final two games of the season. They will step out of conference play to face undefeated and former ASC foe Texas Lutheran. The Bulldogs are 6-0 on the year (one game was declared a no contest after weather delays). HSU then will close the season on Nov. 16 against Louisiana College.
Senior linebacker Jonathan Wilder had 16 tackles last week against Mary Hardin-Baylor and leads the ASC with 84 tackles on the season. He is nearing the HSU top 10 for a single season in tackles. He also moved past Corbett Boone into 10th place on the career tackles chart with 202 for his career. He should moved past Anthony Renfro this week for ninth and could pass Ryan Jacobs for eighth by the end of the season.
