Saturday Live

Here’s where we tell you, and you tell us, whatever you’re seeing or hearing during Saturday’s games.

I’m live here in Abilene, Texas, currently at McMurry for homecoming against East Texas Baptist. Though the Tigers are coming in off three consecutive wins, and McMurry has lost three in a row by 23 points or more, the Maroon and White (preferred local terminology after the surname Indians was dropped in the wake of NCAA pressure) is off to a fast start, scoring on a 58-yard TD run by Rashon Lewis, a junior transfer from Mount St. Joseph. They already picked off a pass in Tigers territory and are threatening again. Techinically, at 3-0 in the ASC, ETBU is in first in the conference, though most people here are aware that the game just underway across down has major title implications. No word yet from Mary Hardin-Baylor’s game at Hardin-Simmons, but keep an eye on the Dose here and the D3 scoreboard.

Some interesting scores so far around the country (Mount Union up 23-0 early, Randolph-Macon up 14-7 vs. Carnegie Mellon, La Crosse perhaps hung over from last week’s stunner, down 21-9 vs. UW-Eau Claire), as well as yesterday (TCNJ beating Rowan). What are people seeing and hearing?

P.S. McMurry now up 13-0.
