DESPITE LAST WEEK’S CONVINCING 44-10 ROUT OVER NORTHWESTERN STATE, AND DESPITE HAVING ONLY 2 LOSSES – ONE TO FBS POWER TEXAS A&M, AND ONE TO 4TH-RANKED MCNEESE STATE – THE SHSU BEARKATS DROPPED A SPOT IN THIS WEEK’S NATIONAL F-C-S POLL. THE KATS ARE NOW RANKED NO. 8 IN THE NATION, 5 SPOTS BEHIND 3RD-RANKED EASTERN WASHINGTON, A TEAM THE BEARKATS DISMANTLED A FEW WEEKS AGO AT BOWERS STADIUM. THE KATS WILL TRY TO IMPRESS A FEW VOTERS THIS SATURDAY WHEN THEY FACE STEPHEN F. AUSTIN IN THE ANNUAL BATTLE OF THE PINEYWOODS AT 3PM AT HOUSTON’S RELIANT STADIUM.
