Aggies Take on the Warriors this Saturday

—By Daulton Perry on 10/11/2012 Following a big 30-9 win this past weekend against Texas College, the Aggies head to Muskogee, Okla. to take on the 4-2 Bacone College Warriors and this matchup looks to be filled with a lot of fireworks.

OPSU has put up a total of 169 points so far this season and Bacone has put up 192 in six games. The Warriors have only allowed 68 points compared to 129 points given up by the Aggies. The game could be decided by that one big play and the Aggies have thrived off those big plays this season. The Aggie defense, however, needs to stop the big plays from happening against them this week and keep the Warriors offense off the field as much as possible.

The Aggies are sitting at 3-2 for the midway point in the season and have been playing strong football on both sides of the ball. Coach Gaskamp has done a great job in his first season as head coach here at OPSU and looks to continue the winning ways for the final five games.

Coach Gaskamp commented on the upcoming games saying, "Our football team is very excited about the opportunity to play Bacone this weekend. They are a well-coached and athletic football team that has a lot of momentum right now. Their defense has been playing lights out and the offense is very balanced and has some good play makers. We will have to play our best game yet to pull out a win this week."

Sometimes coaches from different teams have coached with one another in the past and it can either be a good thing or a bad thing when it comes to game strategies and knowing each other too well. Coach Gaskamp and the offensive coordinator for Bacone, Coach Clough, fall under this category. "Scott (Clough) and I are still close. We still visit a lot about football and offensive schemes. We had a lot of success offensively together at Angelo State, coaching an offensive group that was the second most prolific in school history in 2010. Both of our offenses have similar philosophies: run the ball well, be balanced, and make big plays through the play action pass game. Whoever can do that in this game will win. Scott is one of the most thorough and hardest working coaches I have ever been around. It will be a lot of fun competing against him and his team, and I hope they win every game this year except this one."

Kick-off is at 2 p.m. in Muskogee and Aggie fans can watch the game live on the Internet at www.livestream.com/baconewarriors and game updates may also be found on the Oklahoma Panhandle State University Football (official) page on Facebook.
