Midwestern State Rolls Over Mcmurry

Midwestern State enjoyed its most prolific scoring night since 2007 on the way to a routing McMurry 71-13 Saturday night at Memorial Stadium.

The Mustangs rolled up 566 yards of total offense as seven different players scored touchdowns in MSU's largest win since beating Texas A&M-Kingsville 73-6 during the 2007 season.

MSU bounced back from consecutive losses to improve to 4-2 on the season and to 3-2 in Lone Star Conference play, while the Warhawks fell to 2-4 and 1-4.

Redshirt-freshman Hagen Hutchinson rushed for 106 yards on 10 carries with two touchdowns while completing 6-of-7 passes for 82 yards and a touchdown after making his collegiate quarterbacking debut midway through the third quarter.

Five different running backs found pay dirt for the Mustangs in a balanced ground game.

Redshirt-freshman Don Jerry ran for 65 yards and a TD while true freshman Orlando Haymon rushed for 62 yards with two scores and quarterback Quade Coward added 42 yards and two more touchdowns.

In total, the Mustangs rolled up 383 rushing yards which were the most since piling up 512 against Menlo (Calif.) last season.

Junior LaFrontae Conkleton also chipped in a 1-yard touchdown run late in the first quarter.

Midwestern State ran out to a 35-0 lead early in the second quarter before McMurry struck back with a 47-yard strike from Matthew McHugh to Jeret Smith with 8:33 to play in the opening half.

The McHugh-to-Smith connection was the highlight of the game for Warhawks as Smith finished with 141 yards on seven catches including a second TD - a 35-yard hookup a minute into the fourth quarter.

The Midwestern State defense limited McMurry to -55 yards rushing in the first half as the Warhawks finished with 16 net yards rushing and 243 total yards.

Junior safety Marqui Christian paced the defense with 11 tackles including a sack and a pass breakup, while Deyleon Williams, Paul Brown and Adam Hill each accounted for five stops.

Midwestern State takes on Texas A&M-Commerce Saturday night at Memorial Stadium. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m.
