Several DII players on the field today

Today's game at Cowboys Stadium is a showcase for the kind of talent that is on display at the NCAA Division II level as no less than six players from universities at that level are on the field today.

Of course, ACU fans know about Chicago's Johnny Knox and Danieal Manning, but also on the field from the Lone Star Conference are Chicago starting center Robert Garza (10th year out of Texas A&M-Kingsville) and backup offensive tackle J'Marcus Webb (first year out of West Texas A&M).

For the Cowboys, reserve safety Akwasi Owusu-Ansah (first year out of Indiana, Pa.) and backup quarterback Jon Kitna (14th year out of Central Washington) are on the roster.  When Kitna was at UCW the Wildcats were in NCAA Division III, and in fact, were in Abilene his senior season and beat Hardin-Simmons in a playoff game at Shelton Stadium.
