2013 ACU WILDCAT FOOTBALL


ACU Athletics Staff JARED MOSLEY

Director of Athletics Jared Mosley is entering his 10th year as the director of athletics after serving two years as the associate director of athletics for operations. He is responsible for the athletics budget, fundraising, facilities oversight, student-athlete development, athletics events, marketing and special projects. Mosley was named the seventh director of athletics in ACU history in June 2004, and under his leadership (through 2012-13), the Wildcats won 10 NCAA Division II national championships, 20 Division II regional championships and 46 Lone Star Conference championships. His greatest achievement to date has been to guide ACU athletics through the transition from Division II and the LSC to Division I affiliation and membership in the Southland Conference. As part of the move to Division I status, Mosley negotiated a three-year deal with Adidas for the sports apparel company to be the official outfitter of ACU athletics. In May 2008, Mosley won the All-American Football Foundation’s General Robert Neyland Award as the Athletics Director of the Year for the NCAA Southwest Region. He also serves on the NCAA Division II Men’s National Tennis Committee and is on the National Association for Collegiate Directors of Athletics Executive Committee. Under Mosley’s leadership, ACU continued to build on its athletics tradition as one of the most successful programs in Division II. The Wildcats finished in the top four of the Learfield Sports Directors’ Cup in five of Mosley’s seven seasons as the director of athletics, and ninth the other two seasons. ACU began a women’s soccer program in 2007-08 and had a successful inaugural season, finishing 8-11-1 overall and just missing the LSC Post-Season Tournament. In 2010, that team won its first conference title and advanced to the regional championship match. Marketing and increasing the visibility of ACU athletics have been another focus during Mosley’s tenure. The Wildcats launched a new website (acusports.com) in August 2006 to capitalize on technology advancements and the opportunity to keep fans, alumni, donors and prospects more engaged through a more interactive Web experience. ACU now offers Web streaming of athletics contests, online camp/event registration, email subscription updates and merchandise sales. Abilene Christian also benefited from its televised football game against West Texas A&M in 2006 that was broadcast nationally on CSTV. Mosley is one of the most decorated basketball players to play for ACU. He finished his career in 1999 as the 11th-leading scorer and eighth-leading rebounder in school history, and in his

senior season (1998-99) he led the Wildcats to the Division II South Central Region championship game. He earned several honors during his senior season, including first team GTE academic all-America, first team NCAA all-South Central Region by the NABC, second team allregion by Daktronics-CoSIDA, LSC South Division MVP and first team academic all-LSC. He also was awarded a $5,000 NCAA Post-Graduate Scholarship. Mosley, who graduated with a 3.88 GPA, was a three-time academic all-LSC pick, two-time all-LSC first team selection and all-tournament at the 1999 NCAA II region tournament. He and his wife, Trish, have two sons (Jaden and Jaxon) and a daughter (Blair).

WALLY BULLINGTON

Director of Athletics Emeritus Former ACU director of athletics Wally Bullington rejoined the Wildcats in September 2001 as director of athletics emeritus, and then became the director of athletics in March 2002 when Stan Lambert announced his resignation. A 1993 inductee to the ACU Sports Hall of Fame, he serves the athletics program in a fundraising role. Bullington, elected to the Lone Star Conference Hall of Honor in 1999, served ACU for 39 years as a player, assistant football coach, head football coach and athletics director before he retired in 1988. After graduating from Athens, Ala., High School in 1949, Bullington headed west to play college football. He was a four-year letterman at Abilene Christian, helping to lead the Wildcats to the only undefeated, untied season (11-0 in 1950) in school history. He was named all-Texas Conference in 1950, 1951 and 1952, and received first team all-America honors at center in 1952. While Bullington was an assistant coach at Abilene High School, the Eagles won three state championships in football. When he became head coach, he led his team to a 40-19-1 record over six seasons (1960-65). And in nine years as the head football coach at Abilene Christian (1968-76), his teams had a 62-32-2 record. Four of his nine Wildcat teams were nationally ranked, he coached ACU to its first NAIA Division I national championship, and coached six first team all-America players, including eventual all-pro running back Wilbert Montgomery. In 1969, Bullington became the ACU’s athletics director and presided over the Wildcats’ transition from NAIA to NCAA Division II. During his tenure, ACU won 17 national titles, including another football championship in 1977, and 41 Lone Star Conference titles. Bullington has served as program coordinator for Herald of Truth, an elder for Highland Church of Christ in Abilene and a member of the board for the Abilene Independent School District.

Ken Collums just completed his first season as the 19th head football coach in ACU history, leading the Wildcats to a 7-4 record in their final season as a member of NCAA Division II and the Lone Star Conference. Collums – the FootballScoop.com D2 Coordinator of the Year in 2010 – served as the offensive coordinator at ACU from 2005-11, directing some of the most exciting and dominant offensive units in NCAA Division II history. His two starting quarterbacks over the last eight seasons – Billy Malone (2005-08) and Mitchell Gale (2009-12) – are two of the most productive in ACU and Division II history. The pair combined to throw for 24,121 yards (12,012 for Malone and 12,109 for Gale), and Gale graduated as the all-time leader in yards, completions and attempts in school and LSC history, while Malone is the LSC and ACU career leader in touchdown passes. Last season when Gale topped the 12,000-yard mark, it made ACU just the fourth program in NCAA football history to have back-to-back starting quarterbacks throw for more than 12,000 career yards. ACU joined Hawaii (Timmy Chang and Cole Brennan), Houston (Kevin Kolb and Case Keenum) and Louisiana Tech (Tim Rattay and Luke McCown) on the short list. During their seven seasons with Collums as the offensive coordinator, the Wildcats averaged 468.4 yards of offense and 39 points per game, while achieving near perfect balance in run-pass play selection. In the 82 games the Wildcats played from 2005-11, they ran the ball 2,874 times and threw it 2,857 times while gaining 38,412 yards. Since he rejoined the ACU coaching staff prior to the 2005 season, Collums’ offenses have ranked among the best in the nation. The Wildcats have ranked in the top seven in Division II in total offense five times in the last eight years, including first in 2008, second in 2007, third in 2011 and fourth in 2006. The pass offense has ranked third twice and sixth twice, and the rushing offense was ninth in the nation (2008). The Wildcats’ scoring offense under Collums ranked first in 2007 and 2008 (when ACU scored a combined 1,267 points in 25 games), second in 2010 and sixth in 2006. Under Collums, “ball security” became one of the catch phrases surrounding the program, and the Wildcats turned the ball over only 122 times from 2005-11, including just eight times in 2010 and nine in 2006. In his 82 games as the Wildcats’ offensive coordinator, ACU scored between 30 and 39 points in 18 games, between 40-49 points 22 times, between 50-59 points 14 times, between 60-69 points three times, 70-79 points twice and hit 93 in a 2008 Division II playoff game against West Texas A&M. In 2007 and 208, Collums called the plays for one of the greatest offensive units in the history of college football. Under his guidance, ACU scored 1,267 points (50.7 ppg) and racked up 13,772 yards of total offense (550.9 ypg) in the 25 games during those two seasons. ACU went 21-4 in those games, won the LSC championship in 2008 and saw Bernard Scott win the Harlon Hill Award as the top player in Division II and Sam Collins win the Gene Upshaw Award as the top lineman in the nation. In the greatest offensive game in LSC and ACU history, Collums led the Wildcats to 93 points in a 93-68 win over West Texas A&M in the second round of the 2008 Division II playoffs.

offense and scored touchdowns on 13 of 15 possessions on their way to a remarkable 25-point win over the Buffaloes. ACU’s offense set 29 Division II single-game, Division II playoff single-game, LSC and ACU records in the rout. In 2007, ACU became the first program in NCAA history to have a 3,500-yard passer (Billy Malone), 2,000-yard rusher (Bernard Scott) and two 1,000-yard receivers (Johnny Knox and Jerale Badon) in the same season. ACU’s offense in 2008 set or tied or was part of 78 NCAA, LSC or Wildcat single-game, season or career records. “When I look back at our offense over the last several years, the No. 1 thing I’m proud of is our consistency,” Collums said. “I tell our guys all the time that it doesn't matter what we do – whether we’re throwing it or running it – we have to protect the ball. And at times over those seven years we have been the best at protecting the ball. And that comes from total buy-in from players, and that makes me proud because that lets me know they’re into what we’re telling them.” While coaching at Central Arkansas, Collums led the Bears to some of the greatest offensive seasons in school history.

Collums coached an offensive attack that averaged 300 yards passing per game in three of his last four seasons at UCA. The Bears were the nation’s top passing team in 2001, averaging 373 yards per game. UCA finished in the top 10 in total offense in four of the last six seasons. In 2002 – Collums’ first year as offensive coordinator – the Bears were No. 8 nationally in points per game (37.5), No. 3 in passing yards per game (310.5) and No. 9 in total offense (446 yards per game). In 2004, UCA featured a balanced attack that racked up 38 points per game (No. 14), 477.7 yards per game (No. 6), 269 passing yards per game (No. 19) and 208.5 rushing yards per game (No. 26). As a freshman at Central Arkansas, Collums led the Bears to the 1991 NAIA national championship. In four seasons as the starting quarterback, he directed his team to a combined record of 30-8-3. He graduated from Central Arkansas with a B.S. degree in kinesiology in 1995 and a master’s degree in kinesiology in 1998. A native of Vernon, Collums played for the Vernon Lions of former coach Leo Brittain, leading his team to a 29-2-1 record in his final two seasons as the starting quarterback. Collums led Vernon to the Class 3A state title in 1990. He and his wife, Robyn, have a daughter, Anna, and a son, Layne.

ACU Assistant Coaches DARIAN DULIN

Defensive Coordinator Darian Dulin is in his second season as the Wildcats’ defensive coordinator and defensive backs coach. Last season, Dulin’s unit led the Lone Star Conference in interceptions with 12, was second in the league in scoring defense (21.5 points per game), and was fourth in the league in scoring defense and sacks with 26. The Wildcats led the league in fewest points allowed (236) in 11 games. He coached senior safety L.B. Suggs, who was voted LSC Defensive Back of the Year and was a first team all-LSC selection, as well as first team all-LSC cornerback Steven Ford. Before joining the ACU coaching staff, Dulin was the head coach at Coffeyville Junior College from 2008-11, directing the Red Ravens to a 22-19 record. Coffeyville was 6-5 in 2011 and lost to Hutchinson Junior College in the National Junior College Athletics Association Region VI semifinals. Dulin, who spent the 2004 season as the defensive coordinator at Butler Community College, returned to the Tarleton staff in 2005 after spending four years in Stephenville prior to his one-year hiatus. In 2006, the Tarleton defense ranked second in the Lone Star Conference in scoring defense, allowing just 18.1 points per game. Tarleton was the number one rushing defense, allowing just 90.5 yards per game. In 2005, Tarleton was No. 2 in scoring defense and No. 1 in pass defense efficiency. In 2004, his defense finished the regular season No. 1 in the Jayhawk Conference for total defense. Butler's defense also led the NJCAA in scoring defense, sacks and passing efficiency defense. Before leaving for his one season at Butler, Dulin coached the defensive backs and secondary at Tarleton from 2000-03. A former academic all-America at the junior and senior college levels, Dulin went to Tarleton after serving two years at Sam Houston State University, first as a defensive assistant and then as secondary coach.

NATHAN YOUNG

Running Backs Nathan Young is in his sixth season as an assistant coach on the Wildcat staff and his second as the running backs coach after four seasons in charge of the ACU offensive line. Young was a four-year letterman for the Wildcats (2004-07), earning all-America honors as an offensive lineman. In 2011, the Wildcat offensive line powered an offense that ranked in the top five in the nation in total offense and passing offense. The line featured first team all-Lone Star Conference performers in center Matt Webber and left tackle Neal Tivis, as well as second teamer Josh Perez and honorable mention selections Blake Spears and Jerod Harrell.

2013 ACU WILDCAT FOOTBALL

In 2010 the Wildcat offensive line led an offense that finished second in the nation in scoring offense, seventh in total offense and ninth in passing offense. The line paved the way for sophomore quarterback Mitchell Gale to throw a single-season school record 38 touchdowns and become one of eight national finalists for the Harlon Hill Trophy, given annually to the top player in Division II football. Also, senior guard Royland Tubbs was voted the co-Offensive Lineman of the Year in the LSC South Division, and three-year starter at right tackle, Trevis Turner, signed a free-agent contract with the Pittsburgh Steelers in late July. In 2008, the Wildcats’ offensive line allowed just eight sacks in 12 games and finished second in the nation in sacks allowed per game (0.67). The ACU offensive line also paved the way for running back Bernard Scott to run for 2,156 yards on his way to winning the Harlon Hill Trophy. Young also coached his former teammate, Sam Collins, who won the Gene Upshaw Award as the top lineman in Division II and the Dave Rimington Award as the top center. Collins, Joseph Thompson and Tony Washington each earned first team all-LSC South Division honors and were all named to an all-America team. Underclassmen Royland Tubbs and Trevis Turner each earned all-conference accolades. After his senior season (2007), Young was awarded an NCAA Post-Graduate Scholarship, and he was an ESPN The Magazine first team academic all-America selection. Young was a two-time LSC South Division Offensive Lineman of the Year (2006 and 2007) and in 2007 was named first team all-LSC South Division, first team NCAA all-region and first team Division II all-America. He was the key cog on an offensive line that allowed the fewest sacks in Division II (eight) and the fewest sacks per game (0.62) in the nation. The Wildcats’ offensive line also opened holes for running back Bernard Scott, who set two Division II single-season records (234 points scored and 39 touchdowns scored) while rushing for an LSC and ACU single-season record 2,165 yards. Scott went on to finish as the runner-up for the Harlon Hill Trophy. Following his senior season, Young was selected to play in the Valero Cactus Bowl in Kingsville, an all-star showcase for Division II seniors prior to the NFL Draft. Young started 42 games in four years as a Wildcat and helped turn the program from an LSC also-ran to a back-to-back playoff team. Young graduated from ACU in May 2008 with a Bachelor of Science degree in biochemistry. He was a three-year starter on the offensive line at Plainview High School, where he was team captain, first team all-district and Class 4A honorable mention all-state in 2001 and 2002. He was first team academic all-state in 2001 and 2002. Young also was named to the Amarillo Globe-News’ Super Team in both 2001 and 2002, and he was named to the Lubbock Avalanche-Journal’s all-South Plains Team in 2002. He was an Avalanche-Journal top-10 recruit in 2003. Nathan is married to former ACU women’s track and field athlete Alyson David.


SAM COLLINS

Offensive Line Sam Collins is entering his fifth season on the Wildcats’ coaching staff after a stellar four-year playing career at ACU. The 2013 season will be his second as the Wildcats’ offensive line coach after one year as a graduate assistant coach (2009) and two years as the defensive line coach (2010-11). Last year, he coached a pair of all-conference linemen in junior tackle Blake Spears and junior center/guard Josh Perez. In Collins’ two seasons as the defensive line coach, he helped coach end Aston Whiteside to NCAA Division II all-America honors in both seasons, including a first-team selection in 2011. As a senior in 2008, Collins anchored an ACU offense line that was one of the nation’s best. He won the Gene Upshaw Award as the top lineman in Division II and the Dave Rimington Award as the top center. His blocking helped Bernard Scott run for a school and Lone Star Conference-record 2,156 yards on his way to winning the Harlon Hill Trophy as the top player in Division II. Collins started a school-record 46 straight games at center, starting and playing in every game from his freshman season of 2005 through 2008. He helped lead the Wildcats to the program’s first Division II playoff bid in 2006, three straight playoff bids from 2006-08, their first LSC championship since 1977 in 2008, and a combined record of 33-13. Chosen all-America as a senior, Collins was a multiple all-LSC, academic all-LSC and academic all-region selection. As a high school standout at Denton Ryan, Collins led his team to a 56-5 record in four seasons on the varsity. He helped the Raiders win the Class 4A Division I state championship in 2001 and the Class 4A Division II state title in 2002. Sam and his wife, Cacey, have a daughter, Emma.

KENDRICK HOLLOWAY

In 2010, he coached Edmond Gates to first team NCAA Division II honors and saw him selected by Miami in the fourth round of the NFL Draft. Last year he coached first team all-LSC selection Taylor Gabriel, who will be a junior in 2012. Holloway was a two-year starter at tight end for the Wildcats (2007-08), helping the Wildcats to back-to-back Division II playoff appearances, and in 2008, an undefeated regular season and LSC championship. In two seasons, Holloway caught 31 passes for 320 yards and six touchdowns for the Wildcats. He was a second team allLSC South Division pick in 2007 and a first team all-LSC South pick in 2008. As a senior he caught 21 passes for 213 yards and five touchdowns.

Holloway transferred to ACU from Kilgore College where he was a two-year letterwinner and an all-America performer as a sophomore. He graduated from Dallas Skyline High School. Holloway is married to former ACU track and field all-America, Azraa (Rounds) Holloway.

He also coached punter Spencer Covey to first team all-LSC honors and deep snapper Brent Schroeder to all-LSC honors. The Wildcats led the league in kickoff return average (24.1 yards per return), punt return average (25.2 yards per return) and kickoff coverage, and were second in the league in punting average (35.5 yards per punt). Ribaudo resigned as the head coach at Eastern New Mexico shortly after the end of the 2011 season. He was the Greyhounds’ head coach for seven seasons, but was an assistant under head coach Bud Elliott for eight seasons, including seven (1998-2004) as defensive coordinator. He was 25-51 in his seven seasons as the head coach, including 2-9 in 2011. His greatest success at ENMU, however, came as an assistant coach. Ribaudo was hired at ENMU in 1997 as linebackers coach. He was promoted to defensive coordinator the following year and helped the Hounds post seven consecutive winning seasons and a 49-26 overall record in that span, including LSC South Division co-championships in 1999 and 2000. He was promoted to head coach after Bud Elliott retired following the 2004 season. Under Ribaudo’s direction as the coordinator, the Greyhounds had one of the top defenses in the LSC. The ENMU defense ranked ninth in NCAA Division II in total defense during the 1998 season, allowing just 254.8 yards per game. ENMU ranked 19th in the nation in 2003, after holding opponents to 288.2 yards per game. The Hounds allowed just 110 rushing yards per game in 2003 and gave up just 128.6 rushing yards per game in 2002. Ribaudo began his career at his alma mater, Sabino High School in Arizona. He was assistant coach for three years, and helped Sabino reach the playoffs in 1986. He was an assistant coach at powerful Amphitheater High School in Arizona in 1988 and 1989. In college, Ribaudo played cornerback and running back at Hastings College (Neb.). He earned a bachelor’s degree in exercise and sports science from the University of Arizona in 1988.

2013 ACU WILDCAT FOOTBALL


2012 Game-by-Game Review GAME ONE

#10ACU51, MCMURRY0 Saturday, September 1 • Abilene, Texas

Sophomore end Richardson’s six sacks lead No. 10 Wildcats to 51-0 victory over War Hawks ABILENE – Sophomore defensive end Nick Richardson had six of his team’s nine sacks as 10th-ranked Abilene Christian University introduced McMurry University to NCAA Division II with a 51-0 win in both teams’ season opener at Shotwell Stadium. Richardson’s six sacks tied the ACU record set by James Henderson in 1997, and led a Wildcat defense that held McMurry to 301 total yards, all but 12 yards of it through the air, broke up six passes and recovered a fumble. Warhawk quarterback Jake Mullin completed 37 of 59 passes for 289 yards, and was intercepted once. His counterpart, pre-season NCAA Division II Player of the Year Mitchell Gale, completed 19 of 28 passes for 290 yards and one TD in three quarters of play. Both teams played a scoreless first quarter before a crowd of 11,337, but ACU scored on seven straight possessions to start the second quarter. Charcandrick West’s 13-yard run, redshirt freshman Travis Tarver’s 2-yard dive and a 9-yard pass from quarterback Gale to wide receiver Taylor Gabriel powered the Wildcats to a 21-0 halftime lead. ACU opened the second-half scoring with a 25-yard field goal from Morgan Lineberry. e Wildcats’ next drive was a short one, thanks to

McMurry turning the ball over on downs at its own 10-yard line. Two plays later, Gabriel scored on a 7-yard end-around. ACU scored on its next drive when Marcel reat ran 12 yards for a TD, and tacked on another TD with Tarver’s 5-yard run at the end of the third quarter. reat, a sophomore transfer from Central Arkansas, scored his second rushing TD with a 12-yarder in the fourth quarter. e Wildcats rolled up 461 yards of offense, helped by Gabriel’s seven catches for 108 yards and reat’s 88 yards of rushing.

#24TEXASA&M-KINGSVILLE16, #9ACU13 Saturday, September 8 • Abilene, Texas

ACU offense can’t get untracked as No. 9 Wildcats drop LSC opener to No. 24 Javelinas ABILENE – Matt Stoll kicked three field goals, Nate Poppell threw for 372 yards and defensive-minded Texas A&M-Kingsville held off No. 9Abilene Christian University, 16-13, at Shotwell Stadium. e No. 24 Javelinas improved to 2-0 on the season, and 1-0 in the Lone Star Conference South Division, while ACU fell to 1-1 and 0-1 in the LSC. e win ended ACU’s eight-year winning streak in the 47-year series, which Kingsville dominated from 1984-2003, and snapped the Wildcats’ 12-game regular season home winning streak. Kingsville’s fierce defense held preseason NCAA Division II player of the year Mitchell Gale to his lowest output in three years, and broke a stretch of 23 straight games in which he had thrown a touchdown. Gale, a senior, completed 13 of 31 passes for 137 yards. After scoring 51 points in its season-opener last week against McMurry, ACU could only muster 11 first downs and 224 yards of offense against the Javelinas. ACU held the Javelinas’ vaunted running game to only 48 yards – and 1,000-yard rusher Jonathan Woodson to 27 yards – but had no answer for Poppell, who completed 33 of 50 passes and one TD. Wide receiver Taylor Gabriel’s second 7-yard end-around scoring run in as many weeks staked the Wildcats to a 6-0 lead on the last play of the first

quarter. Kingsville answered back when Nate Poppell threw a 22-yard TD pass to Robert Armstrong on the first drive of the second quarter. e Javelinas padded their lead to 10-6 when Matt Stoll kicked a 35-yard field goal with 1:07 left in the first half. Kingsville opened the third quarter with a 16-play drive that Stoll capped with a 29-yard field goal and upped the Javelina advantage to 13-6. Stoll’s third field goal of the game, with 14:57 left in the fourth quarter, gave his team a 16-6 advantage. But on the first play of the ensuing drive, ACU wide receiver Darrell Cantu-Harkless ran 65 yards for a TD to pull his team to 16-13. Stoll missed a 9-yard field goal on Kingsville’s next possession, and the Wildcats took over. ACU could get no closer than the Javelina 33-yard line on its drive, and Morgan Lineberry’s 51-yard field goal attempt missed with 7:05 remaining. ACU’s last-chance drive began after being pinned on its 6-yard line by Javelina punter Angel Millan. But on a fourth-down-and-7, Kingsville’s defense rose to the occasion again, sacking Gale on his own 12 with 1:11 remaining.

GAME THREE

#20ACU34,TARLETONSTATE31 Saturday, September 15 • Cowboys Stadium • Arlington, Texas

Second-half rally sends No. 20 Wildcats to big conference win over Tarleton State ARLINGTON – At halftime, deep inside the bowels of Cowboys Stadium, ACU head coach Ken Collums stood in front of his team and told them what was about to transpire in the second half against Tarleton State. “I told them that we were going to go up and down the field on them offensively and that our defense was going to get stops,” Collums said. Pretty bold talk from a coach who had just watched his team sputter throughout the first half and was trailing 20-10 at the break. e defense had been on the field for almost 17 minutes and had allowed 327 yards, while the offense once again struggled and had just 147 yards. But the Wildcats’ first-year head coach turned out to be prophetic as he watched his team completely turn around its fortunes and perhaps walk away with a 34-31 win over the Texans. e 20th-ranked Wildcats improve to 2-1 overall and 1-1 in the Lone Star Conference with the win, while the Texans fall to 1-1 overall and in the LSC. After completing just 12 of 22 passes for 122 yards in the first half, ACU senior quarterback Mitchell Gale reverted to his normal self in the game’s final 30 minutes by completing 15 of 20 passes for 157 yards and two scores, both to junior wideout Taylor Gabriel. Trailing 20-10 at the break, ACU took its second possession of the third quarter 36 yards on five plays, taking just 1:56 off the clock before freshman running back Travis Tarver scored on a 7-yard run to cut the TSU lead to 20-17. e short field was set up by ACU wide receiver Darian Hogg, who got a hand on Isaac Arellano’s punt, the first in a series of game-changing plays by several different Wildcats in the second half. After Tarleton went three-and-out on its next series, Gabriel made his first big play of the second half with a 54-yard punt return down to the TSU 15.

ACU needed just four plays and 2 minutes, 10 seconds to cover the 25 yards, scoring on a 6-yard pass from Gale to Gabriel to give the Wildcats a 24-20 lead with 4:03 to play in the third quarter. e teams traded field goals by Morgan Lineberry and Blake Barnes to make it a 27-23 ACU lead with 9:35 left before the Wildcats began what would turn out to be the game-clinching drive. ACU methodically moved 79 yards in 14 plays and took 6:23 off the clock before scoring on a 16-yard pass from Gale to Gabriel. e Wildcats were 4 for 4 on third-down plays on the drive, converting a third-and-10 on the drive’s third play with a 14-yard pass from Gale to Hogg. On third-and-2 from the TSU 42, Gale scrambled up the middle for three yards. On third-and-18 from the 47, Gale lofted a deep pass to DeMarcus ompson, who hauled it in on the sideline for a first down at the TSU 13yard line. After a rush for no gain and a sack of Gale back to the 16-yard line, Gale found Taylor over the middle and let him go to work. Gabriel tried to cut back, but slipped and looked as if he were going to go down short of the goal line. But he dropped his hand down to keep his balance, popped up and leapt into the end zone for a 34-23 ACU lead with 3:12 to play. Tarleton came right back down the field, moving 85 yards on 10 plays to an Aaron Doyle 1-yard touchdown run with 1:02 to play. Doyle then completed a 2-point conversion pass to Will McLane to make it 34-31 and setting up an onside kick. But ACU’s or Woerner recovered the kick – his second big recovery on a kickoff in the game – and the Wildcats were able to run the clock out on a big come-from-behind win.

Hamblin completed 33 of 48 passes for 274 yards. He was sacked three times and intercepted twice, and ASU had 14 penalties for 152 yards, but the Rams held the ball for nearly twice as much time as the Wildcats.

Morgan Lineberry kicked a 32-yard field goal to put his team up 9-0 with 9:21 left. Angelo State got on the scoreboard when Hamblin’s 1-yard TD run closed the ACU margin to 9-7, a drive set up by a 36-yard end-around run by wide receiver Dakarai Pecikonis. Morgan Lineberry missed a 42-yard field goal with 10:38 left in the second quarter. ASU pulled ahead of the Wildcats when Donavan Roberts’ 8-yard run around left end with 4:14 left put the Rams on top, 14-9. Hamblin scored his second TD of the game with 1:50 left in the third quarter, running untouched around left end for 3 yards, upping the Ram lead to 21-9.

third quarter to begin what looked like a promising rally. With the ball on his own 23-yard line, Gale’s deep incomplete pass to wide receiver Darian Hogg drew a 15-yard interference and a 15-yard personal foul penalty from the Rams, setting up the Wildats on the ASU 47. Four plays later at the top of the fourth quarter, Gale found freshman fullback Elton Chrochran open over the middle for a 33-yard scoring pass. e Rams answered right back when Joey Knight caught a 13-yard pass from Hamblin, broke a tackle and scored to put ASU further ahead, 28-16, with 9:11 left. Gale and the ACU offense responded again on the next drive, pulling the Wildcats to within five points, 28-23, with the senior quarterback finding Taylor Gabriel wide open in the end zone for a 17-yard TD pass with 7:55 left. ACU forced the Rams to punt, but turned the ball over on downs at their own 32 with 4:22 left. ASU couldn’t advance the ball and Jarrod Martin’s 42-yard field goal try went awry when the Rams were whistled for a false start with 2:50 remaining. On fourth and 12 from the Wildcat 34-yard line, linebacker or Woerner sniffed out a trick play from the Rams and tackled Samir Baker for a loss at the ACU 39. With 2:43 left, Gale then began what looked like a possible decisive drive but it ended two plays later when his first-down pass at the Ram 45-yard line deflected off freshman Travis Tarver and was intercepted by ASU’s Ryan Clapsaddle. Gale completed 14 of 42 passes for 308 yards and three TDs. Gabriel, a wide receiver, was the Wildcats’ leading rusher with 22 yards. ompson caught five passes for 131 yards, Darrell Cantu-Harkless caught five for 69 yards and Gabriel had four for 33 yards.

mark. On ENMU’s next possession, a diving interception by freshman cornerback Tyler Chapa at the Greyhounds’ 44-yard line gave the ball back to ACU, which converted the turnover into more points when Morgan Lineberry kicked a 29-yard field goal. Return yards again stymied the Greyhounds when Wallace’s interception of Wood covered nearly half of the field, upping ACU’s lead to 31-7. Eastern tacked on a 30-yard field goal by Baca with three seconds left, shortening the first-half deficit to 31-10. ACU scored three times in the third quarter, increasing its lead to 38-10 on its opening drive when Charcandrick West caught a 21-yard TD pass from Gale. Defensive lineman Melvin Shead intercepted a Wood pass on the Greyhound 7-yard line and returned it for a TD, and Hogg caught his second scoring pass of the game, an 8-yarder, with 14 seconds left.

Alternating junior John David Baker at quarterback and freshman wide receiver Caleb Stone in the Wildcat formation, ACU marched 56 yards for its eighth and final TD of the game, with sophomore Marcel reat running 5 yards for the closing score.

GAME SEVEN

#14WESTTEXASA&M36, ACU0 Saturday, October 13 • Canyon, Texas

#20 Buffaloes dominate ACU, 36-0, in possible final series meeting between longtime rivals CANYON – West Texas A&M started the series against ACU in 1921 with a shutout win in Canyon. ey finished it with another shutout at Kimbrough Memorial Stadium. at 35-0 win over the Wildcats in 1921 was bookended with a 36-0 trampling of the 2012 version of the Wildcats. In between those two games were several classics, including several since 2006 when the two teams became Lone Star Conference powers. Suffice to say, Saturday night's contest will not join the ranks of the series classics. No. 20 West Texas A&M dominated in every phase of the game as the Buffaloes put a 36-0 whipping on the Wildcats in a game that really wasn’t as close as the score might suggest. ACU will end the series against the Buffs holding a 28-18 edge, but the Buffaloes put their stamp on the final game with a dominating performance. WT quarterback Dustin Vaughn threw for 359 yards and three touchdowns, Khiry Robinson ran for 102 yards and the WT defense sacked ACU quarterback Mitchell Gale eight times as the Wildcats were shut out for the first time in exactly 11 years. e streak of 121 straight games in which the Wildcats had scored began after ACU was shut out 31-0 at Angelo State on Oct. 13, 2001. ACU was never in the game as WT scored on its first possession of the game on a 14-yard scoring pass from Vaughn to Trevor Hammargren to make it 7-0 with 6:10 left in the first quarter. Incredibly, that turned out to be

the only points the Buffaloes would need. e game was 10-0 late in the second quarter before WT converted a third-and-15 to the ACU 39-yard line with four seconds left in the half. Sergio Castillo came in and drilled a career-best 56-yard field goal to make it a 13-0 game at halftime e Buffs got the ball to start the second half and drove 75 yards on eight plays to a Robinson 4-yard touchdown run to make it 20-0 with 11:20 left in the third quarter. e backbreaker came less than three minutes later after ACU’s offense went three-and-out when Vaughn hit backup wide receiver Jarrian Rhone with a 75-yard scoring strike to make it 27-0 with 8:37 left in the quarter. Gale was sacked for a safety near the end of the third quarter to make it 29-0. Vaughn hit Nathan Slaughter with a 31-yard touchdown pass with 11:53 left in the game and that was it for the scoring. e only drama remaining was whether or not ACU would be able to put points on the board. e Buffs’ defense didn’t allow it as they held ACU to a meager 210 yards of total offense, its worst output of the season. Gale was sacked eight times, the most he’s ever been sacked in a game in his career. ose lost yards (minus-46 yards) contributed to an ACU rushing game that accounted for just three yards on 28 carries. e Buffs, meanwhile, racked up 475 yards as they improved to 6-1 overall and 5-0 in league play. ACU falls to 4-3 overall and 2-3 in the LSC.

GAME EIGHT

#12MIDWESTERNSTATE35, ACU31 Saturday, October 20 • Abilene, Texas

No. 12 Midwestern State rallies to knock off Wildcats, 35-31, in front of Homecoming crowd ABILENE – Quarterback Brandon Kelsey ran for 141 yards and four touchdowns, the last with 1:27 to play, to help 12th-ranked Midwestern State University overcome Abilene Christian University in an offensive shootout, 35-31, at Shotwell Stadium. Except for one crucial fourth-down play late in the contest, ACU had few answers for the Mustangs’ ground game, ranked fifth in the nation at 305.2 yards per game. MSU rolled up 389 yards rushing but had little success stopping the Wildcat passing attack. ACU quarterback Mitchell Gale completed 26 of 38 passes for 335 yards and three TDs. Still stinging from being shutout 36-0 last Saturday for the first time in 11 years, ACU put on an inspired performance but fell short of its upset bid. Two of the top scoring offenses in the LSC showed the ACU Homecoming crowd their strengths in the first half, although ACU’s defense forced two turnovers in the second quarter that helped the home team forge a slim lead in the tense, back-and-forth contest. ACU opened the game by moving the ball downfield with its running game, but scored on Gale’s 10-yard pass to wide receiver Taylor Gabriel with 10:08 remaining. MSU answered right back when Kelsey ran 2 yards for a TD at the 6:10 mark. A 46-yard pass from Gale to Gabriel set up the next ACU score, a 3-yard TD run by Charcandrick West that put the Wildcats back on top, 14-7 with 2:49 left in the quarter. Kelsey’s 30-yard run on the next drive knotted the game at 14-14 with half a minute left. Both teams misfired on their first drives of the second quarter. ACU’s Morgan Lineberry missed a 49-yard field goal and MSU wide receiver Keiven Swanson fumbled the ball following a catch at the Wildcat 19-yard line.

ACU junior placekicker Ryan Owens booted a 32-yard field goal with 4:04 left in the half, and the Wildcat defense held when defensive back Steven Ford intercepted Kelsey’s pass at the ACU 45-yard line with 2:40 left. e Wildcats, however, could not capitalize on MSU’s second turnover of the quarter – Owens’ 49-yard field goal attempt was blocked with just under a minute remaining – but took a 17-14 lead into halftime. Kelsey drove the Mustangs to a TD in their first possession of the third quarter, scoring his third rushing TD of the game with a 6-yard run up the middle at the 9:23 mark. ACU countered with a scoring drive of its own, with Gale throwing a 20-yard pass in the right corner of the end zone to Gabriel with 5:24 left, restoring its lead at 24-21. But the Mustangs kicked their ground game into high gear, marching back downfield on an 82-yard drive, capped by LSC rushing leader Keidrick Johnson’s 8-yard scoring run that made the new score 28-24 with 1:48 left. An MSU punt by Greg Saldino – only his first of the day – pinned ACU on its 1-yard line with 11:08 left in the game. e Wildcats could only advance to their 8-yard line, and were forced to punt. e ACU defense held, stopping the Mustangs on a fourth-and-inches attempt at the Wildcat 44 with 7:50 left. Gale drove the Wildcats downfield, tossing a 5-yard TD pass to freshman tight end Jamie Walker with 5:43 left that helped ACU regain the lead, 31-28. MSU responded with a 12-yard drive that consumed 4:16 of time, capped by Kelsey’s fourth rushing TD of the game with 1:27 left that restored the Mustang advantage, 35-31. ACU’s final-chance drive began on its own 35 following MSU’s kickoff. It ended when a Gale pass on fourth and 4 at the Mustang 49 landed out of bounds.

GAME NINE

ACU24,TEXASA&M-COMMERCE17 Saturday, October 27 • Commerce, Texas

Gale’s late touchdown pass to Hogg seals Wildcats’ 24-17 comeback victory over Lions COMMERCE – Mitchell Gale threw an 85-yard touchdown pass to Darian Hogg with 1:20 left in the fourth quarter as the ACU Wildcats escaped Memorial Stadium with a 24-17 win over Texas A&M-Commerce in Lone Star Conference football action. e Wildcats trailed 14-3 at halftime and 17-3 in the third quarter before ACU scored two third-quarter touchdowns to knot the game at 17-17 going to the fourth quarter. Commerce missed a 21-yard field goal with 8:29 left in the game that would have given the Lions a 20-17 lead, and then the teams traded turnovers and then punts, giving the Wildcats the ball at their own 15-yard line with 1:31 to play in the game. On first down, Hogg shook his defender at the line of scrimmage and got free and caught a perfectly thrown ball from Gale. Hogg would not be caught from behind as he sprinted into the end zone with the sixth-longest touchdown catch in Wildcat history. “at wasn’t even my call,” ACU head Ken Collums said after the game. “Darian reminded me that on that play previously in the game that the safety wasn’t moving off the hash and that he would be open if he could beat the cornerback off the line. He was able to get clear and Mitchell put it on him.” After the score, the Lions moved their own 25-yard line to the ACU 30 with nine seconds left in the game. But on first down, Commerce quarterback Kevin Vye was intercepted by Justin Stewart at the 2-yard line and the clock ran out on the game and the Lions. ACU scored first on a 26-yard field goal by Ryan Owens at the 9:43 mark of the first quarter, but Commerce answered with an 11-play, 75-yard drive that ended with a 1-yard touchdown run by Wayne Chapman. e Wildcats came right back down the field, but Gale was intercepted by Marlin Terrell at the Commerce 5-yard line on the final play of the first quarter, keeping the Wildcats out of the end zone.

Commerce – which entered the game near the bottom of the Lone Star Conference in every offensive category – went right back down the field, capping an 11-play, 73-yard drive with a 28-yard touchdown pass from Vye to Garrett Smith and pushing the lead to 14-3 with 9:11 left in the second quarter. e Lions opened the scoring in the second half with a 33-yard field goal from Chase rasher to make it a 17-3 game. But Darrell Cantu-Harkless made the first of two big plays in the third quarter when he returned the ensuing kickoff 68 yards to the Commerce 32-yard line to put the Wildcats in great field position. ACU took advantage as Gale capped a 7-play, 32-yard drive with an 8-yard scoring strike to Hogg, who caught the ball head high in the back corner of the end zone to make it 17-10 with 6:26 left in the third quarter. e ACU defense then forced a punt and Taylor Gabriel returned that punt 39 yards to the Commerce 42-yard line to again give the Wildcats good starting field position. e Wildcats went to a power set and ran the ball on four straight plays to the score. Charcandrick West ran for six and eight yards, respectively, on the first two plays of the drive before Harkless ran for six more and then got outside for 22 yards and the touchdown that tied the score at 17-17 with 29 seconds left in the third quarter. at set up the climactic fourth quarter that saw the Wildcats score with 80 seconds to play to pull out the win, their 40th all-time over the Lions in a series that dates back to 1922. Gale finished the game 16 of 27 for 236 yards and two scores, while Hogg had four catches for 117 yards and two touchdowns. West carried the ball 13 times for 77 yards, while Cantu-Harkless had five carries for 38 yards and one score, three catches for 39 yards and the 68-yard kickoff return.

GAME TEN

ACU22, #21WESTALABAMA16(OT) Saturday, November 3 • Abilene, Texas

Cantu-Harkless sparks Wildcats to overtime win in final home game as member of Division II ABILENE – Mitchell Gale threw for 284 yards and running back Darrell Cantu-Harkless was at his all-purpose best as Abilene Christian University turned the defensive tables on 21st-ranked University of West Alabama, upsetting the No. 21-ranked Tigers in overtime, 22-16, at Shotwell Stadium. e surprising Wildcats, pitching a shutout through three quarters and limiting the Tigers to 129 total yards in the first half, survived a furious UWA rally in the fourth quarter to improve their overall record to 6-4 and drop UWA to 7-3. e game was another in the First-and-10 Challenge series between teams from the Lone Star and Gulf South conferences. Earlier this year, ACU defeated GSC member Delta State, 34-28, in Cleveland, Miss. ACU’s 225 yards of offense before halftime nearly matched what UWA had averaged giving up for an entire game (242 yards) this season. e Tigers, who entered the game with the nation’s No. 2 overall defense and best total pass defense, had few answers for ACU’s short- to mid-range passing game. ey also had few answers for Cantu-Harkless, a junior running back who led his team with nine catches for 113 yards and one touchdown, 13 carries for 58 rushing yards, a 71-yard punt return and a 46-yard kickoff return. His 14-yard TD pass from Gale in overtime provided the Wildcats’ winning margin. ACU’s defense rose to the occasion in overtime, with defensive back Steven Ford breaking up a fourth-down pass on the left sideline to seal the win. UWA, which outgained ACU in total yards, 395 to 371, had clinched at least a tie for the GSC title last week with a 37-7 win over Delta State. e Wildcats took a 3-0 lead on the game’s opening drive when Ryan Owens kicked a 34-yard field goal. e Wildcats forced UWA to punt on its first possession, but a scintillating 71-yard punt return by Cantu-Harkless gave his team the ball on the Tigers’ 9-yard line. ree plays later, Charcandrick West’s 1-yard dive up the middle gave ACU a 10-0 advantage. Owens began the second half for ACU the same way he did the first

half, with a field goal. His 24-yarder at the 3:23 mark put the Wildcats ahead, 13-0. e 16-play, 71-yard drive consumed seven minutes of time. West Alabama answered with a 13-play, 75-yard drive early in the fourth quarter, capped by a 10-yard touchdown pass from 5-foot, 7-inch quarterback Kyle Caldwell to wide receiver Malik Lofton with 12:34 left. Owens came to the Wildcats’ rescue again, kicking his third field goal of the game, a 40-yarder at the 8:42 mark. e Tigers pulled closer when Caldwell tossed his second TD pass of the quarter, a 34-yarder to Chad Toocheck with 6:06 remaining. However, ACU linebacker or Woerner blocked the extra point attempt, preserving a 3-point edge for the Wildcats, 16-13. ACU’s next drive stalled, setting up UWA on its own 32-yard-line following a Steven Covey punt. From there, Caldwell engineered his third scoring drive of the fourth quarter, capped by a game-tying 30-yard field goal by Ryne Smith with 18 seconds left. Cantu-Harkless returned the ensuing kickoff 46 yards to the Tigers’ 46-yard line, but Morgan Lineberry’s 63-yard field goal attempt fell short as time expired, forcing overtime. ACU got the ball first in overtime, and earned one first down via its running game. On third down and 10 from the 10-yard line, Gale’s swing pass to Cantu-Harkless put the ball in the end zone and the Wildcats up, 22-16. Owens’ point-after attempt was wide left. On the Tigers’ first possession of overtime and facing a fourth-down-and-4 from the 19-yard line, Ford tipped a Caldwell pass intended for Toocheck, setting off a raucous celebration by the home team. UWA alternated quarterbacks throughout the game, with Caldwell completing 16 of 24 passes or 165 yards and two TDs, and Gary Johnston rushing 12 times for 65 yards. Johnston completed five of six passes for 75 yards.

GAME ELEVEN

ACU24,INCARNATEWORD 12 Saturday, November 10 • San Antonio, Texas

Gale sets conference, ACU career passing record as Wildcats end 40 years in LSC with win SAN ANTONIO – Mitchell Gale saved his best for last. In the final game of his brilliant ACU career, the senior quarterback from Alva, Okla., threw for 408 yards and two touchdowns as the Wildcats (7-4) outlasted pesky Incarnate Word, 24-12, at Tom Benson Stadium. In so doing, Gale became the all-time leading passer in program and Lone Star Conference history, finishing with 12,109 career yards - 97 more than the quarterback who played the four years before he arrived at ACU, Billy Malone. e completion that put him over the top was a 28-yard strike to sophomore DeMarcus ompson in the third quarter. More impressive, it made Gale and Malone only the third set of college quarterbacks in NCAA history to post back-to-back careers of at least 12,000 passing yards each, and the first such duo from Division II. Players from the other two schools with such sustained excellence are Case Keenum (19,217 yards from 2007-11) and Kevin Kolb (12,964 yards from 2003-06) of the University of Houston and Colt Brennan (14,193 yards from 2005-07) and Timmy Chang (17,072 yards from 2001-04) of the University of Hawaii. Brennan was a Heisman Trophy finalist and won the Sammy Baugh Award as the nation’s top passer. “e thing I’m feeling more than anything is gratitude,” Gale said after the game. “I’m so thankful to have been at ACU and to have had the chance to be around people like Coach (Ken) Collums who’ve helped me become a better football player and more important to help me grow spiritually and as a man.” Gale’s record-breaking night included the first and third longest of his 97 career touchdown passes. e first, an 87-yarder to Charcandrick West early in the second quarter, was a broken play that saw Gale avoid the Cardinals’ rush and heave the ball forward to West

who scampered down the right sideline untouched. e other touchdown was a bullet that junior wide receiver Darian Hogg caught on a crossing route and took down the left sideline for 80 yards. ACU’s final game in NCAA Division II and as a member of the Lone Star Conference could scarcely have started better. Wildcat freshman Travis Tarver, who didn’t arrive at the stadium until shortly before the game because of a family funeral, immediately made his presence felt by recovering a fumble on the opening kickoff at the Incarnate Word 12. But the Wildcats would only gain two yards and settle for a 27-yard field goal by Ryan Owens. Gale’s big plays overshadowed an uneven offensive performance in the first half. But after Incarnate Word cut the Wildcats’ lead to 17-12 in the fourth quarter, Gale engineered an eight play, 62-yard drive that ended with West’s 5-yard touchdown run. West finished with 181 all-purpose yards – 72 yards rushing and 109 yards receiving. e entire ACU team wore red sweatbands around their ankles in honor of Rex Fleming – the 10-year-old son of ACU associate director of athletics for media relations Lance Fleming – who has battled a brain tumor for the last two years. “I wanted them when they got tired and looked down,” Collums said, “to see that sweatband and think of Rex.” After suffering a seizure two days before the ACU-Incarnate Word game, Rex passed away 15 days later after a valiant two-year struggle with brain cancer. e Wildcats’ final 7-4 mark on the season gave the ACU football program its 25th season of at least seven wins, including seven straight (2006-12).

The Southland Conference

I

n an era of considerable change in intercollegiate athletics, the Southland Conference continues to be a model of innovation, stability and consistent achievement as it celebrates a half-century of the academic and athletic accomplishments of its member institutions. Commemorating its 50th anniversary in 2013, the Southland Conference has transformed itself into a dynamic and respected consortium of 14 member universities in four states. Beginning with a historic meeting of five institutions in Dallas on March 15, 1963, the Southland Conference set on an extraordinary course that has proven successful well into its five decades of existence. The successful transformation continues, as the Southland Conference welcomed the addition of Oral Roberts University in 2012-13, marking the league’s first entry into the state of Oklahoma. Also, on July 1, 2013, the Southland welcomed four additional members: Abilene Christian University, Houston Baptist University, the University of Incarnate Word in San Antonio, and the University of New Orleans. In addition to its newest members, the Southland Conference also consists of the University of Central Arkansas, Lamar University, McNeese State University, Nicholls State University, Northwestern State University, Sam Houston State University, Southeastern Louisiana University, Stephen F. Austin State University and Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi. An original Southland member, Abilene Christian rejoins the league as one of the most decorated athletic programs in NCAA history, and the addition of Houston Baptist, Incarnate Word and New Orleans gives the Southland a regular competitive presence in the key metropolitan areas of Houston, San Antonio and New Orleans. Southland cities encompass approximately 14.5 million people, and seven of its television markets rank among the top 100 in the U.S. All told, the membership of the Southland encompasses nearly 140,000 current students and an alumni base of nearly 800,000. Famous alums from current Southland Conference schools include former CBS news anchor Dan Rather (Sam Houston State), NBA executive Joe Dumars (McNeese State), ABC news anchor Robin Roberts (Southeastern Louisiana), MLB star Wade Miley (Southeastern Louisiana), NBA legend Scottie Pippen (Central Arkansas), and track and field Olympians Kenta Bell (Northwestern State), and Bobby Morrow and Billy Olson (both Abilene Christian). Other notable alums from current members include Grammy Award-winning musicians Frank Ocean (New Orleans), Don Henley and

Rodney Crowell (both Stephen F. Austin), television personality and actress Ellen DeGeneres (New Orleans), current NFL standouts Lardarius Webb (Nicholls State), Terrence McGee (Northwestern State), and Danieal Manning (Abilene Christian), professional golfers Shawn Stefani and Chris Stroud (both Lamar) and Colin Montgomerie (HBU), CBS Sports Producer Lance Barrow (Abilene Christian), award-winning filmmaker Richard Linklater (Sam Houston State), American Idol winner Kris Allen (Central Arkansas), NFL Hall of Famer Jackie Harris (Northwestern State), former NFL standouts Bobby Hebert (Northwestern State), Gary Barbaro (Nicholls State), Wilbert Montgomery (Abilene Christian) and Gary Reasons (Northwestern State), former MLB stars Darryl Hamilton (Nicholls State) and Kevin Millar (Lamar), NCAA football coach Charlie Strong (Central Arkansas), TV personality Kathie Lee Gifford (Oral Roberts), actors John Larroquette (New Orleans), and Ricardo Chavira and Jesse Borrego (both UIW) and NFL coaching legend O.A. “Bum” Phillips (Lamar and Stephen F. Austin). The Southland sponsors 17 championship sports, all at the NCAA Division I level. The eight men’s sports include baseball, basketball, cross country, football, golf, tennis, and indoor and outdoor track and field. The women compete for nine championships in basketball, cross country, golf, soccer, softball, tennis, indoor and outdoor track and field, and volleyball. The conference earns automatic qualification to NCAA championships in baseball, men’s and women’s basketball, men’s and women’s cross country, football, men’s and women’s golf, women’s soccer, softball, men’s and women’s tennis, and volleyball. Continuing its tradition of innovation, the league launched the Southland Conference Television Network in the fall of 2008 and has broadcast more than 160 events. The network has expanded its reach to roughly 13 million households throughout Texas, Louisiana, Arkansas and Oklahoma in recent years, and has also gained national viewership through ESPN3 and Fox College Sports. In its first five years, the network has received recognition for its work, earning numerous College Sports Media and Telly Awards. The Southland Conference, in conjunction with the city of Frisco, Texas, and Hunt Sports Group, also serves as the host to the NCAA Division I Football Championship Game in Frisco, which has been home to the conference headquarters since 2006. The game is played at Frisco’s FC Dallas Stadium, and after a successful three-year run, the partnership was rewarded with a three-year renewal to serve as the national championship host site through the 2015 season.


Southland Conference football ranks among the best Football Championship Subdivision leagues in the nation, and enjoys an annual expectation of competing for the national championship with multiple teams advancing to the NCAA playoffs each year. In 2011 and 2012, Sam Houston State advanced to the NCAA national championship game. Also, in 2002 and 2003, McNeese State finished the regular season ranked No. 1 in the nation, and advanced to the 2002 national championship contest. The conference has been represented in eight national championship games since the league joined the FCS (formerly I-AA) in 1982. All told, Southland teams have played in 104 Division I playoff games in 31 years, winning 51 of the contests. Historically, the Southland’s successful football heritage has sustained itself through numerous membership and classification changes. The Southland joined the NCAA College Division in 1968, and was designated as NCAA Division II in 1973 before joining Division I in 1975. The Southland was an NCAA Division I-A league from 1978-81, before joining the ranks of FCS in 1982, its home ever since. During its tenure as a Division I-A conference, the Southland Conference initiated the startup of the Shreveport, La.-based Independence Bowl in 1976. The Southland representative served as the host team of the bowl until 1980, compiling a 2-3 record in those contests. The conference can lay claim to five national championships, including College Division championships through former members Arkansas State (1970, UPI) and Louisiana Tech (1972, National Football Foundation). Louisiana Tech also won the first NCAA-sanctioned national title, winning the Division II playoffs in 1973. Tech followed that with the UPI’s Division II national championship in 1974. Louisiana-Monroe won the 1987 Division I-AA national championship. McNeese State, which has made 14 appearances in the national playoffs, also played in the 1997 NCAA Division I Championship game, while Stephen F. Austin played in the 1989 title contest and has six playoff appearances, including 2009 and 2010. Northwestern State has played in the playoffs six times, and advanced to the semifinals in 1998, while Sam Houston State has earned six trips to the postseason, including the semifinals in 2004. Nicholls State has participated three times in the playoffs, and Central Arkansas has made consecutive playoff appearances in 2011 and 2012. On four occasions, the Southland has placed three teams in the NCAA playoffs. The Southland has produced 168 first-team football All-Americans during its history and in 2010, Stephen F. Austin quarterback Jeremy Moses became the first player in Southland history to receive the Walter Payton Award, which is presented annually to the most outstanding football player at the FCS level. The Southland is one of five FCS conferences with at least 200 selections (206) in the National Football League draft. There have been 26 Southland players taken in the draft since 2000, including Southeastern Louisiana defensive back Robert Alford, who was picked as the first FCS player in the second round of the 2013 draft. There are 20 former Southland players on NFL rosters heading into the 2013 season.Southland Conference alums in the NFL include Buffalo’s Terrence McGee (Northwestern State) and Chicago’s Josh McCown (Sam Houston State), who have each been in the league for the last 11 seasons. Other recent NFL additions from the Southland include Green Bay’s Kevin Hughes (Southeastern Louisiana), St. Louis’ Jabara Williams (Stephen F. Austin) Washington’s Devin Holland (McNeese State), Atlanta’s Marcus Jackson (Lamar) and Cleveland’s Dominique Croom (Central Arkansas). The Southland has seen former Nicholls State players win Super Bowl rings in two of the last three seasons, as former Colonel Antonio Robinson was a member of the Green Bay Packers' Super Bowl XLV champions. And, Nicholls-ex Lardarius Webb was a member of the Super Bowl XLVII champion Baltimore Ravens. Among the former NFL stars from the Southland include Fred Dean, who was inducted to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2008 to become the first former Southland Conference player to earn induction in Canton. Other great NFL players from the Southland include Super Bowl XXIX quarterback Stan Humphries, Bill Bergey, Mike Barber, Fred Barnett, Bubby Brister, Ray Brown, Roger Carr, Larry Centers, Bruce Collie, Jackie

Harris, Buford Jordan, Tim McKyer, Kavika Pittman, Billy Ryckman, Rickey Sanders, Eugene Seale, Rafael Septien, Terrance Shaw, Marcus Spears, Pat Tilley and Marvin Upshaw. The Southland Conference has also seen its share of great coaches during its history in Maxie Lambright, Ernie Duplechin, Sam Goodwin, Jack Doland, Bennie Ellender, Bobby Keasler, Larry Lacewell, Bill Davidson, Dennis Franchione, Pat Collins, and Ron Randleman. In addition to football, the Southland Conference can point to a number of accomplishments in all sports. Men’s basketball has experienced a tremendous amount of success during the Southland’s 50 years. The league has sent four teams to the NCAA Sweet Sixteen, as well as a squad to the NIT Final Four. Basketball stars Karl Malone, Joe Dumars, Jeff Foster, Dwight “Bo” Lamar, Andrew Toney and Mike Oliver played in the Southland Conference. In 2006, Northwestern State, playing as the No. 14 seed in the NCAA tournament, defeated No. 3 seed Iowa, 64-63, in first-round action. The league also saw three of its current teams, including newcomer Oral Roberts, reach the postseason in 2012. Coaches such as Billy Tubbs, Mike Vining, Scotty Robertson, Jack Martin, Andy Russo, Bob Marlin, Danny Kaspar, Mike McConathy, Bobby Paschal and Pat Foster have led successful teams in the Southland. In women’s basketball, the Southland also has its share of tradition with former member Louisiana-Monroe advancing to the 1985 NCAA Women’s Final Four, and Stephen F. Austin sustaining itself as one of the most successful programs in the history of the sport. In 2008, the Ladyjacks became the eighth program in NCAA Division I history to record more than 800 wins. In each of the last four seasons, at least three Southland teams reached the postseason, and in 2012, four women’s squads earned postseason berths. A Southland team has played in the WNIT 13 times, including each of the last seven years. Women’s basketball all-stars have included Eun Jung Lee, Lisa Ingram, Portia Hill, Deneen Parker, Katrina Price, and Joskeen Garner, and coaches such as Gary Blair, Linda Sharp, James Smith and Linda Harper. Baseball has emerged as a constant Southland Conference strength with the league earning numerous national rankings and NCAA tournament berths. The Southland consistently ranks among the top-10 conferences in the country. In 2011, 50 of the league’s 150 non-conference victories came against the Big 12, Conference USA, Sun Belt and SEC. Major leaguers such as Ben Sheets, Micah Hoffpauir, Hunter Pence, David Segui, Brian Lawrence, Ben Broussard, Chuck Finley, Jerald Clark, and Terry Matthews once played in the Southland. In 2012, Southeastern Louisiana’s Stefan Lopez became the league’s second winner of the national Stopper of the Year Award, which is selected by the National Collegiate Baseball Writers. Sam Houston State’s Luke Prihoda won the award in 2007. Only the Big 12 has had more players win this award. The Southland also fares well each year in the MLB Draft, but for the first time in conference history, two Southland players were selected in the first round of the 2013 draft. Stephen F. Austin shortstop Hunter Dozier was picked eighth by the Kansas City Royals making the Southland player and hitter of the year the league’s top draft pick in any sport. Later in the first round, the Texas Rangers selected Oral Roberts right-handed pitcher Alex Gonzalez, Southland pitcher of the year, with the 23rd overall pick. The Southland has had eight first-round picks in its history. In 2011, Lamar mentor Jim Gilligan became the first Southland coach to reach 1,200 career victories, ranking him sixth-best in the NCAA among active Division I coaches and 24th all-time. He leads an impressive list of coaches who have patrolled Southland Conference dugouts, including Mark Johnson, Mike Bianco, John Cohen, Mitch Gaspard, Smoke Laval, Butch McBroom, Pat Patterson, Tony Robichaux, Dave Van Horn and Jim Wells. Softball continues to enjoy success on a national level, beating nationally ranked opponents every year since 1995, including McNeese State’s win at No. 1 Arizona State early in the 2012 season. In 2011, the league had four wins against ranked opponents, including a win by Stephen F. Austin at No. 3 Texas. In 20 years of NCAA tournament competition the Southland has racked up 15 wins.

The Southland also has a proud history in volleyball with former member Texas-Arlington representing the conference numerous times in the NCAA tournament, including a run to the NCAA Volleyball Final Four in 1989. Track and field has also served as a proud asset for the Southland Conference as the league has produced numerous national champions and Olympic medalists. The Southland boasts 28 men and three women student-athletes who have won NCAA track and field national championships, including Northwestern State’s Trecey Rew, who won the women’s discus in 2011, Texas A&M-Corpus Christi’s Shadrack Songok (10,000-meter run) in 2007 and 2008 and McNeese State’s Brad Gebauer (pole vault) in 2007. The league has also produced U.S. Olympic track and field medalists Earl Bell, Thomas Hill, Al Joyner, Charles Austin, and Liudmila Litvinova, along with other Olympians. With the addition of 10 more All-Americans in 2012, the league continues to find national success in both indoor and outdoor track and field. In the indoor circuit, the Southland boasts 66 unique all-time All-Americans that have won a combined 11 national championships. Likewise, in the outdoor season, the league has seen 158 different All-Americans, including 128 men and 30 women, who have combined to win 21 national championships. Golf has traditionally been a strong Southland sport as exemplified by Lamar men’s golfer Chris Stroud, who finished third individually at the 2003 NCAA National Championship and is a member of the PGA Tour. Both Stroud and former Southeastern Louisiana golfer Hugo Leon competed in the 2010 U.S. Open. Lamar alum Shawn Stefani had a pair of top seven finishes through the midway point of the 2013 PGA tour. The league has sent multiple teams into postseason play on numerous occasions, including in 2012 when three Southland teams – Lamar, Southeastern Louisiana and Texas-Arlington – competed in the NCAA tournament. Additionally, during the past five seasons the Southland has sent 12 golfers to compete as individuals in regional play with five in 2009, three more in 2010, one each in 2011 and 2012 and two in 2013. Lamar won a pair of NCAA Division II national championships in 1967 and 1968, and also produced PGA player Ronnie Black. In 2005, Lamar’s Dawie Van Der Walt finished fourth individually and Lamar tied for 12th place at the NCAA Men’s Golf Championship, before the Cardinals tied for ninth in 2006 and tied for third in 2007. Former Lamar golfer Casey Clendenon advanced to the semifinals of the U.S. Amateur in 2007. In women’s tennis, Southeastern Louisiana won 46 consecutive conference matches during a four-year period that began in 2005, while in men’s tennis Texas A&M-Corpus Christi has played in the NCAA tournament five times in the last seven years. The conference has increased sponsorship and championship opportunities for female student-athletes in recent years, adding women’s golf and soccer as league sports. In women’s soccer, Stephen F. Austin midfielder Kylie Louw became the first player in conference history to earn All-America honors, when she earned third-team mention by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America. A member of the South Africa Olympic team during the 2012 London Olympics, she also garnered first-team Academic All-America Honors from the College Sports Information Directors of America. The Ladyjacks have gone 72-12-8 (.826) in conference play during the last 10 seasons. In women’s golf, the Southland sent two teams to 2012 NCAA regional play for the first time since the league added the sport in 2002. Lamar leads all league teams with four team championships during that span. The Southland Conference has repeatedly demonstrated its commitment to the academic and athletic success of its student-athletes. With the F.L. McDonald Postgraduate Scholarship Award, the league annually honors one male and one female scholar-athlete with a stipend for postgraduate study. The Scholar-Athlete Award is given to each institution’s male and female student-athlete with the highest grade-point average. The Steve McCarty Citizenship Award, initiated in 2005-06 and named after the former Stephen F. Austin athletic director, properly recognizes accomplishments off the court for a male and female student-athlete. Also, student-athletes with grade-point averages above 3.0 are honored on the Southland’s annual All-Academic teams and 40

Commissioner’s Honor Roll. A record 979 student-athletes appeared on the honor roll following the 2012 spring semester, and total of 1,545 student-athletes earned a spot on the honor roll at the end of the fall and spring semesters during the 2012-13 academic year. While successful on the fields and courts, the Southland Conference has repeatedly demonstrated its commitment to the academic and athletic success of its student-athletes. The conference continues to make great strides in the classroom. During the last seven years, no other Division I conference has improved its Academic Progress Rate as well as the Southland Conference has. In fact, in 2009-10, the Southland ranked 10th among the 31 Division I leagues in men’s basketball APR. The academic progress the league has shown ultimately leads to higher graduation rates for our student-athletes. In addition to providing expanding opportunities for student-athletes, the Southland Conference and its member institutions are very involved in various community outreach programs. Many of these programs provide positive life skills training such as academics, citizenship and leadership to school-aged students in Southland communities.

Aston Whiteside

Bernard Scott

Clyde Gates

Former ACU all-America defensive end Aston Whiteside spent the 2012 season on the Chicago Bears’ practice squad after going through spring drills and the early part of training camp with the Dallas Cowboys. Whiteside was not activated for a game in 2012. He finished his career by earning first team NCAA Division II all-America honors from the American Football Coaches’ Association, first team Super Region IV and Region Defensive Player of the Year honors from Daktronics, first team all-Lone Star Conference honors, and LSC Defensive Lineman of the Year honors in 2011. Whiteside finished his four-year career with 31.5 sacks, good for second on ACU’s all-time list, and 57.5 tackles for loss (totaling 341 yards in losses). As a senior in 2011, Whiteside faced constant double-teams each week from his defensive end spot, but it didn’t stop him from racking up a career-high 40 tackles to go along with six sacks and 12.5 tackles for loss. He still earned first team all-America honors from the American Football Coaches’ Association honors and second team honors by Daktronics. Whiteside was voted the 2008 and 2010 LSC South Division Defensive Lineman of the Year, 2010 first team all-Super Region Four by Daktronics and Don Hansen’s Football Gazette, and Daktronics’ 2010 second team all-America and Super Region Defensive Player of the Year.Bernard Scott

After becoming the first ACU player to win the Harlon Hill Trophy, Scott was chosen by the Cincinnati Bengals in the sixth round of the 2009 NFL Draft and immediately began making a name for himself. Scott earned his spot on the Bengals’ roster as a valuable kickoff return specialist and backup running back behind starter Cedric Benson. He started twice in place of an injured Benson in 2009 and ran for more than 100 yards in a game against Oakland and had 89 yards in a win over Cleveland. He also returned a kickoff 96 yards for a touchdown against the defending Super Bowl champion Pittsburgh Steelers, helping the Bengals clinch the division on their way to the organization’s second playoff appearance since 1990. In two seasons at ACU, Scott rushed for 4,321 yards and scored 73 touchdowns, earning all-America honors as a junior and senior. As a senior in 2008, he led ACU to a 10-0 regular season record and won the Harlon Hill Trophy as the top player in NCAA Division II football with the third-highest point total in the award’s history.

After running the fastest 40-yard dash at the NFL Combine last February (4.37 seconds), Clyde Gates was selected in the fourth round of the 2011 NFL Draft by the Miami Dolphins. After one season with the Dolphins (2011), he was released during the 2012 pre-season and signed shortly after by the New York Jets. Gates was an all-Lone Star Conference South Division Wide Receiver and South Division Wide Receiver of the Year in 2010. Gates also was voted first team all-America by the American Football Coaches’ Association and second-team all-America by Daktronics. He finished his senior season with 66 catches for 1,065 yards and 13 touchdowns. He ranked second in the LSC and 25th in NCAA Division II in receiving yards per game (98.5). He became just the seventh player in ACU history to have a 1,000-yard receiving season and just the fifth with a 60-catch season. He finished his Wildcat career in the top three in school history in catches, (third with 158), yards (second with 2,885), and touchdowns (tied for first with 27).

Danieal Manning

Daryl Richardson

Raymond Radway

Drafted by the Chicago Bears with their first pick in the 2006 NFL Draft (second round, 42nd overall), Danieal Manning became the first Wildcat to start in a Super Bowl since running back Wilbert Montgomery starred for the Philadelphia Eagles against the Oakland Raiders in January 1981. After five years with the Bears (2006-10), Manning returned to his home state of Texas in July 2011 when he signed a free-agent contract with the Houston Texans. As a rookie with the Bears in 2006, Manning started 16 of Chicago’s 18 games when the team won its first NFC title since 1985 and went on to Super Bowl XLI where the Bears lost to the Indianapolis Colts. In five seasons with the Bears, Manning played in 77 of 80 games (56 starts at safety and cornerback) and was a valuable contributor as a defensive player and on special teams. Manning became one of the most dangerous kickoff-return specialists in the NFL over those five years as he returned 101 kickoffs for 2,711 yards (26.8 yards per return) and one touchdown (an 83-yarder against the New Orleans Saints in December 2008). In 2008, he returned 36 kickoffs for 1,070 yards and one touchdown and led the league in kickoff return average (29.7 yards per return). Manning was a 12-time all-America safety at ACU (2003-05) and was named to the university’s all-Century Team in 2005 as a defensive back and return specialist.

Former ACU running back Daryl Richardson – the younger brother of Bernard Scott – snuck into pre-draft conversations with a strong Pro Day at ACU last April, and he was selected in the seventh round of the 2012 NFL Draft (next-to-last overall selection) by the St. Louis Rams. Richardson had a strong pre-season and was the backup running back to Steven Jackson during the 2012 regular season. He had one of the quietest great careers in ACU history, finishing his three seasons with the Wildcats as the second all-time leading touchdown scorer (38), fourth in points scored (228) and fifth in rushing yards (2,303). Richardson was voted all-LSC three times.

After an impressive performance at ACU’s “Pro Day” last spring, Raymond Radway was a free-agent signee with the Dallas Cowboys in July 2011. He was the talk of Cowboys’ camp early on. In the Cowboys’ final game of the pre-season, Radway caught three passes for 62 yards and, with his speed, appeared to have won a spot on the final roster as a deep threat for the Cowboys. But on the next-to-last play of the game, Radway suffered a serious leg injury that forced his move to the injured reserve list, which is where he spent the rest of the season. After a strenuous rehabilitation program, he was ready for training camp in July 2012. He was released by the Cowboys but re-signed by the team early in the season and released again. He was signed to the Chicago Bears’ practice squad a few days later to give them three former Wildcats on the roster. He ended the season on the St. Louis Rams’ practice squad, joining former ACU running back Daryl Richardson, who made headlines in a backup role to Stephen Jackson. Radway was the Wildcats’ third-leading receiver in 2010 with 32 catches for 438 yards (13.7 yards per catch) and five touchdowns. He played just two seasons of football after an all-America track career for the Wildcats. Before playing the 2009 and 2010 seasons on the football field for the Wildcats, Radway was a four-time NCAA Division II all-America performer and the 400-meter outdoor national champion in 2008.

Montgomery in College Football Hall of Fame Wilbert Montgomery – the most electrifying player in ACU football history – was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in South Bend, Ind., on Aug. 17, 1996. Montgomery was in the first-ever college division class, which also included, among others, Louisiana Tech’s Terry Bradshaw, Jackson State’s Walter Payton, Buck Buchanan of Grambling, Neil Lomax of Portland State, Billy “White Shoes” Johnson of Widener, Pa., and Gary Reasons of Northwestern State, La.. During his four-year career as a Wildcat, Montgomery led the Wildcats to an NAIA Division I national championship in 1973 and brought them national acclaim by setting a college football record for touchdowns scored in a season (31 in 1973 regular season) and career (70 in regular season games). As a freshman he was named first team all-America and was an honorable mention selection in 1976. In addition he was a two time all-Lone Star Conference selection, was a running back on the LSC’s all-decade teamfor the 1970s and was the conference’s first athlete inducted into its Hall of Honor in 1996. He finished his ACU career with 3,047 yards rushing and led the Wildcats to a 33-10-1 record in his four years. He was held scoreless in only three games of his college career. Montgomery went on to play nine seasons in the National Football League and led the NFC in kickoff returns as a rookie (1977). He played eight seasons with Philadelphia, shattering almost all of the Eagles’ rushing records and leading the club in rushing six times. Montgomery, who ended his NFL career with Detroit in 1985, holds seven Philadelphia career rushing records, including yards (6,538), most yards gained in a season (1,512 in 1979), career 100-yard games (26), most 100-yard games in a season (eight in 1981) and most touchdowns in a game (four). In 1979, he led the NFL with 2,012 all-purpose yards (rushing, receiving, returns). A two-time Pro Bowler, Montgomery led the Eagles to Super Bowl XV in January 1981. He now coaches running backs for the Baltimore Ravens.

Montgomery was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in South Bend, Ind., August 17, 1996.

Montgomery is the Philadelphia Eagles career rushing leader who led his team to Super Bowl XV in New Orleans in 1981.

2013 ACU WILDCAT FOOTBALL


Facilities Shotwell Stadium The ACU Wildcats began playing football at Shotwell Stadium in 1960, and the 2012 season was their 53rd season in the facility, which is owned and operated by the Abilene Independent School District. Shotwell also is the home of Abilene and Cooper high school football and soccer teams, and hosts several high school playoff games each year. ACU, AHS and CHS play in a stadium that has undergone major renovation in the last several years, including the addition before the 2002 season of a SafePlay turf field. In July 2007, a new scoreboard was added to the north end of the stadium. New dressing facilities on the south end and new restrooms on the north end were added to the stadium prior to the 2005 season. Shotwell has been the site of numerous high-profile games, but maybe none more than the NCAA Division II playoff game played Nov. 22, 2008, between ACU and West Texas A&M. In that game, the Wildcats beat the Buffaloes, 93-68, in the second round of the playoffs, with the two teams combining to break more than 40 records. ACU running back Bernard Scott – who would go on to win the Harlon Hill Trophy as the top player in NCAA Division II football – scored an NCAA-record seven touchdowns (six rushing) as the Wildcats set an NCAA record for most points by one team in a playoff game and the two teams combined for the most points scored in a playoff game. The first national TV broadcast for a Shotwell Stadium game was Aug. 27, 2009, when the Wildcats beat Northwest Missouri State, 19-14, in the season-opener for both teams on the CBS College Sports Network. In September 2010, ESPN cameras were in Abilene as the AHS Eagles beat Plant (Fla.) in a matchup of two of the nation’s top high school teams.

Wally Bullington Practice Facility The 2013 season will be the seventh for the ACU Wildcats to use the Wally Bullington Practice Complex, named for the ACU director of athletics emeritus who also is former head football coach and director of athletics. The facility includes a 70-yard-long synthetic turf practice field located north of the Teague Special Events Center. The field is regulation width and is located on the far east side of the grass football practice fields on campus and is an approximately $300,000 addition to ACU’s athletics facilities.

Powell Fitness Center Wildcat student-athletes are fortunate to train in the state-of-the-art Powell Fitness Center, which opened in 1993 and was renovated in the spring and summer of 2007. In the last renovation, the size of the fitness was doubled to more than 8,000 square feet. Included in the center are free weights, cable weights, hammer strength equipment, cardio exercise machines, and other exercise equipment. The Powell Fitness Center was built in 1992 on Oliver Jackson Boulevard, adjacent to Elmer Gray Stadium. It is named for its donor, Lee Powell of Paducah, Ky. The late Powell was ACU’s 1963 Outstanding Alumnus of the Year, a recipient of an honorary Doctor of Laws degree from the university, and a member of the ACU Sports Hall of Fame.

I’m thankful for how I’ve grown in football and out of football while I’ve been at ACU. It’s helped me become the person I’ve become. I couldn’t have done that without coach Collums or my parents and grandparents or the people around me who have invested themselves in me and poured love into me.” – Mitchell Gale

n 2012, senior quarterback Mitchell Gale became the all-time leading passer in Lone Star Conference and ACU history as he finished his career with 12,109 yards, passing former teammate Billy Malone (12,012 yards from 2005-08) atop both lists. In the process, Gale also made ACU only the fourth university in NCAA history to have back-to-back starting quarterbacks throw for at least 12,000 yards in a career. The first to do it was Louisiana Tech University with Tim Rattay and Luke McCown from 1997-2003. They were followed by the University of Hawaii with Timmy Chang and Colt Brennan from 2001-07, and the University of Houston with Kevin Kolb and Case Keenum from 2003-11. Malone and Gale from 2005-12 make ACU the latest entrant into the select club. During his four years as the Wildcats’ starting quarterback, Gale led ACU to 30 victories, three trips to the NCAA Division II playoffs and one LSC title.
