    The 10th-ranked Kats forced five turnovers — three interceptions and two fumble recoveries — on their way to a 47-7 rout of Nicholls to remain unbeaten and take sole possession of first place in the Southland Conference…

    Hornets Continue Their Winning Streak

    Despite recording 12 penalties for a loss of 111 yards, the Hornets never lost control in Friday night’s 13-7 win over Humble.

    Coming into the season, the Kats wanted to be the best defense in the Southland Conference from the defensive line all the way to the secondary. In doing so, Sam Houston have put together a squad that is, statistically, one of the best in the country….

    Sophomore QB the Engine Keeping the Train Moving

    The Bearkats are a different football team with sophomore Brian Bell at quarterback. That was evident Saturday when Bell returned to action against Stephen F. Austin.

    Bell was sidelined in last week’s win over UTSA due to concussion-like symptoms, but returned healthy against SFA. The young quarterback gave a solid performance, completing 16-of-23 passes for 214 yards and a pair of touchdowns in the Bearkats’ 45-10 blowout victory….
