Two members of the Lions football team were given weekly conference honors. For the second straight week, kicker Chris Quiroga was named north division special teams player, after making three field goals and three extra points in the Lions 30-3 rout of Northeastern Oklahoma. For the first time, Andree' Smith was picked north division defensive player. The lineman forced a fumble, had a quarterback sack, and 2 1/2 tackles for losses.
