No. 5 Midwestern State knocks out Buffs, 45-3, to move to 6-0 

D.J. Myers scored on the ground and through the air Saturday and quarterback Layton Rabb threw for three scores as the No. 5 Midwestern State Mustangs rolled over the West Texas A&M Buffaloes 45-3 Saturday night at Memorial Stadium.

The Mustangs are now 6-0 for the season and remain in first place in the Lone Star Conference with a 5-0 mark. The Buffs fall to 3-5 and 1-4.

The starting time for the Homecoming Game was moved up by three hours because of forcasted bad weather and the game ended up being called because of lightning with 5:07 left.

The game was well in hand after the Mustangs opening possession. Rabb hit Myers on a slant and the senior split a pair of defensive backs and raced 72 yards for the score.

The teams would exchange field goals -- Jaron Imbriani kicked a 21-yarder for the Mustangs and Alex Schrag booted a 53-yarder for the Buffs. It was the second time in as many weeks an MSU opponent kicked a field goal of that distance.

Things changed quickly in the final seconds of the half.

Rabb connected with Tyrique Edwards for a 23-yard touchdown with 32 seconds left in the half as Edwards outjumped the Buff defender in the back of the end zone.

A high pooch kickoff into the wind was fumbled by a WT play and Jaydon Cunigan recovered for the Mustangs at the 35.

It took the Mustangs just 24 seconds to get back in the end zone with Rabb and Xavier Land teaming up on an 11-yard score and Rabb came back with a conversion pass to Dorian Johnson to make it 24-3 at the half.

The second half saw Adrian Seales score on a 2-yard run; a DaMarcus Wilson interception set up a 5-yard Nicholas Gabriel TD; while another botched pooch kick set Myers'14-yard score on a jet sweep.

The Mustangs dominated in total offense with 521-228, allowing the Buffs just 44 yards in the second half.

Rabb finished 23 of 31 for 289 and the three scores, while Myers caught eight passes for 149 yards and had the one run for a score.

Drew Bolin had four tackles and a sack, while Rider's Tristan Shearman had four stops and half a sack to lead the MSU defense. Steven Rogers, Cunigan, Sir'Vell Ford,

Wilson and Jaylon Jackson all had three stops.

MSU finished with four sacks and five tackles for loss.

The Mustangs hit the road next Saturday for a 6 p.m. game against UT-Permian Basin. The game will be played at Grande Communications Stadium in Midland.

    A record 10 home runs. A slew of strikeouts. The all-or-nothing All-Star Game mirrored what baseball has become.
