Trailing by three points at halftime, the Hornets said they felt pretty good. An hour or so later, they didn’t look so good.
After the Panthers of Kingwood Park ran off and left Huntsville 34-14, the Hornets were smarting a bit.
“We can’t lose our minds like we did tonight. We can’t lose control,” Huntsville defensive end Steve York said. “We’ve got to watch what we do out on the field and tonight we fell apart. We fell apart and started running our mouths.”
It’s back to business as usual for the Bearkats.
After getting a little time to enjoy the big win over McNeese State last Saturday, Sam Houston now has its attention squarely fixed on Lamar today.
“Against McNeese, that was a real good game. We didn’t have a whole lot of good history against them going in,” Bearkats cornerback Bookie Sneed said following a chilly walk-through practice on Thursday.
In a place where Sam Houston has endured far more agony than jubilation over the years, the seventh-ranked Kats took it to McNeese State and walked out of “The Hole” with yet another dominant performance from start to finish.

Coming off their biggest win in the last couple of years, the Hornets could have let up a little Friday. It would have been understandable had Huntsville limped through a homecoming game against a struggling and much smaller squad from New Caney.
Huntsville’s defense did not let up in the least. The Hornets dominated New Caney, holding the Eagles to 55 total yards of offense in a 23-0 Huntsville victory at Bowers Stadium…

There was seemingly no stopping the Bearkats on Saturday, especially not on homecoming day. From the first snap until time ran out, Sam Houston’s defense harassed the Colonels, who could not come up with an answer.
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…
Despite recording 12 penalties for a loss of 111 yards, the Hornets never lost control in Friday night’s 13-7 win over Humble.
Mistakes didn’t negatively affect the Hornets or their motivation to beat Humble, which was evident in the postgame celebration at Bowers Stadium.
The victory tied Huntsville (3-1) for the top spot in District 18-4A, along with Humble, Kingwood Park, Willis and Summer Creek…
It’s hard to keep a good thing quiet for long and with one impressive performance after another against some solid teams, the Bearkats defense has made a name for itself that speaks very loudly.
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….
