Football game moved to OPSU
Game was to be played at Lumpkins
Lions to face Aggies in Goodwell, Oklahoma
WAXAHACHIE, Texas -- Southwestern Assemblies of God University’s scheduled football game on Saturday, October 27, against Oklahoma Panhandle State University has changed locations.
Originally slated for Waxahachie’s Lumpkins Stadium (capacity 10,000), the schools have agreed to move the game to OPSU’s Carl Wooten Field (cap. 5,000), where the Aggies went 2-3 during their 3-7 season in 2011.
Jesse Godding, SAGU Athletic Director and Head Coach of the football Lions, announced the decision on Friday, April 6.
Southwestern will still have five home games, starting with a September 1st contest with Bethany College (Ks).
The Lions will now play three straight road games, October 20 at Wayland Baptist University (Plainview, Tx), at OPSU the following week, then travelling to Langston, Oklahoma for a November 3 clash against Langston University. All will have a 2:00pm (CST) kickoff.
The series against OPSU, who are in the NCAA Division II, has seen the Aggies win all three meetings, though all have been decided late or in extra time.
In 2009 the game went several overtimes before Panhandle State escaped with a 50-48 win after the Lions overcame a 21-7 deficit. SAGU came up short in a 35-31 loss in Goodwell, Ok.
Last fall the Aggies pulled away in a 38-22 triumph at Lumpkins. The Lions went 4-6 last season.
