#10 MSU Preparing for Central Oklahoma

The Midwestern State Mustangs are 3-0 and in the Top 10 in this week's Division II Coaches' Poll.

But they're still hard at work getting ready for this week's game, their third of four Lone Star Conference Crossover games, against Central Oklahoma.

The Mustangs rolled up an average of 526 yards of offense in their first three games, and they'll look to continue that against a Bronchos defense that is talented, but very young, which Coach Bill Maskill says makes them a lot like the Mustangs' defensive unit this year.

"Their defense is athletic and talented, and a lot like us," said Coach Maskill.
"Unlike us, they've got 11 new starters, as opposed to us having 8, but you know I think that they're a really good football team."

Maskill called the Broncho offense "very diverse."

He explained, "They can do a lot of things, they do, do a lot of things, they give you a lot of different formations, they've got a really nice running back--number 21--Their quarterback is playing at a high level, they've got athletic receivers and athletic linemen. They're a concern. They'll be by far and away the best opponent that we've played overall."

The #10 Mustangs head to Edmond to face UCO Saturday night, with kickoff at 7 PM.
