BELTON, Tx. (KALB) - LC freshman running back Devin Briscoe rushed for 202 yards against Mary Hardin-Baylor, but his efforts were for not as the Wildcats would fall to the Crusaders, 65-20.

After UMHB took a 13-7 lead heading into the second quarter, Briscoe would score his second touchdown of the game on a 19-yard run. The Crusaders would score 21 unanswered points until Sal Palermo tossed a 36-yard pass to Micah Dunn to make the score 37-20 at halftime.

UMHB scored 28 unanswered points in the second half including three passing touchdowns from King, who finished with 259 passing yards and four touchdowns.

LC (2-2) will face McMurry (1-3) on Saturday, March 27 in the American Southwest Conference Football Championship in the four-seed game. The game will kick-off on Saturday at 1:00 p.m.
