Lions fall to Harding in Texarkana Bowl

Cindy Roller

The Harding Bison rushed for 297 yards and scored three times in the third quarter and rolled to a 44-3 win over Texas A&M University-Commerce in the inaugural Live United Texarkana Bowl on Friday at Razorback Stadium.
 
The game was the first postseason appearance for the Lions since 1995, but cold temperatures and a steady rain did not help the Lion (7-5) offense, who completed just seven of its 37 passes and finished with just 100 total yards on the night. Meanwhile, the Bison (9-2) showed little ill effects from the weather, racking up 504 total yards.

Postgame notebook: Midwestern's misty escape

Ki-Janaven Garrett, a freshman running back from Center High School, helped the Lions make progress with their rushing attack. Garrett ran for 78 yards and one touchdown.

The 23rd-ranked Midwestern State Mustangs escaped with a 30-24 win over Texas A&M University-Commerce at Memorial Stadium on Sept. 28.

That’s right, escaped. An A&M-Commerce onside kick attempt in the waning minutes tumbled into the hands of a Midwestern defender, ensuring victory for the visitors. Only then was the outcome decided. Considering how the Lions had played in the fourth quarter, it’s a safe bet the Mustangs were more than a little relieved.

This Year's Halloween Costumes?

So I don't know about you guys, but I'm super excited for Halloween :]

It's a great holiday for me, as it involves 2 of my favorite things: playing dress up, and candy. However, I seem to be the only one here at Lions After Dark who is prepared for the festivities, as Gaby and David do not even have a costume picked out yet. My friends and I will be going to Thrillvania as a group of Mario characters (I'll be Peach).

Maybe Gaby & David will get some ideas on the show tonight when we look at this year's most popular costumes.
