The West Texas A&M Buffaloes blasted Texas College, 73-0, in a season opener for both teams at Buffalo Stadium on Sept. 2, a game that drew more than 5,000 spectators.
Chuck Cox of the College Football America Yearbook staff covered the game. His photo gallery is on our Facebook page and photos of the game could end up in the 2022 edition of the Yearbook. The photos may also be used by the American Football Coaches Association for its web site, social media and publications.
WTAMU (1-0) easily handled the Steers (0-1), taking a 28-0 lead after the first quarter and a 52-0 lead at halftime. That gave the Buffs the opportunity to play many second- and third-string players.
WTAMU quarterback Nick Gerber threw for just 150 yards but went 10-of-11 and two of his completions went for touchdowns. Markell Stephens-Peppers caught three passes for 57 yards and two touchdowns. Running back Khalil Harris had 111 yards and two scores. The Buffs defense gave up just 102 total yards and Ayrton Payne had five total tackles and an interception.
Former Dallas Cowboys head coach Greg Ellis made his debut as Steers head coach in the game.
West Texas A&M plays UT-Permian Basin on Sept. 11, while Texas College faces Langston College.
