  • UCO atop state college football power poll

    By Scott Munn | Published: Tue, Oct 28, 2014

    The Oklahoman’s weekly state college football power poll: 1. Central Oklahoma (6-2): Best guess is the Bronchos finish with an 8-3 record — though superpower Pitt State seems beatable. 2. Panhandle State (6-2): Aggies, who will get a test at Langston this week, are enjoying one of their finest seasons in a good while. 3. East Central (5-2): Quarterback Spencer Bond runs for a touchdown and passes for another as Tigers bust Southwestern. 4. Langston (4-3): Lions can ill-aford a loss to Panhandle State. Another setback will nix Langston’s already questionable NAIA playoff hopes. 5. Southeastern (5-3): Touchdowns on offense, defense and special teams during 45-7 rout of Northwestern. 6.

  • State college football: UCO wins again, guaranteed a winning season

    EDMOND — Central Oklahoma assured itself of a winning football season for the first time since 2008 on Saturday at Wantland Stadium. As can be expected from a young team, however, it didn’t come as easy as coach Nick Bobeck would’ve liked. “We found a way to win the football game,” Bobeck said after UCO pulled out a 35-26 victory before 2,112 fans. “We’ve been on the other side of that, where we found a way to lose the game. So I’m happy about that.” UCO improved to 6-2 in the Mid-America Intercollegiate Athletics Association. With three games remaining in the regular season, the Bronchos are guaranteed of at least a .545 winning percentage and the school’s best season since that 2008 team was 7-4

  • Oklahoma state college notebook: Langston coach Dwone Sanders frustrated that team's not getting votes in NAIA poll

    BY SCOTT MUNN | Published: Thu, Oct 9, 2014

    The National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics say the CSFL champion gets an automatic bid to the playoffs — with a caveat that team is ranked in the top 20 of the final poll. But right now, Langston is not even receiving votes. No CSFL team is. So between now and mid-November, the league-leading Lions have to convince voters they are worthy of the rankings and qualified of a playoff bid.
