West Texas

A&M-Commerce were shut out in the first quarter for the first time this season, but gained the lead in the second and never relinquished it.

After a slow start by both teams, the Texas A&M University-Commerce football team finally found its form to jump ahead and beat the West Texas A&M Buffaloes by a score of 38-20.

The Lions (6-1, 5-0 Lone Star Conference) were kept scoreless in the first quarter by West Texas (2-4, 1-3 LSC) for the first time all season, and were looking to erase a seven point deficit in the second. A&M-Commerce finally gained the lead for the first time on a 53-yard pass from Harrison Stewart to Darby Smith. The Lions also found the end zone thanks to some trickery, when running back Richard Cooper was given the chance to throw the ball and connected on a 12-yard pass to Chris Chumlay.
