Final: ACU 41, West Texas A&M 34

Mitchell Gale threw a short pass to WR Edmund Gates, and the speedy senior sprinted 51 yards for a touchdown with just 10 seconds elapsed in the fourth quarter. Morgan Lineberry's PAT tied the score at 27-27.

WT moved back in front when Taylor Harris threw his fourth scoring pass of the game, an 11 yarder to Tyson Williams with 9:05 left in the quarter. Sergio Castillo's PAT put WT back on top, 34-27.

ACU's Daryl Richardson ran 7 yards off right tackle for a TD with 4:51 remaining, capping a 10-play, 67-yard drive. Lineberry's PAT tied the score at 34-all.

After a 32-yard punt return by Kendrick Johnson set up ACU at the WT 36 yard line, Richardson ran off right tackle, broke free of a jam at the line and sprinted in for a 23-yard TD with 1:00 left.   

The Wildcat defense held off a furious WT rally, breaking up a pass in the end zone as time expired.

ACU won, 41-34, clinching at least a tie for the LSC South Division championship for the second time in three years.
