Aggies Plan to Bounce Back after Tough Loss—By Daulton Perry on 10/31/2012 Goodwell, Okla.—After last week's heartbreak overtime loss, the Aggies want a win this weekend at home against Wayland Baptist University, and even though the Pioneers' record is just 2-6, they trounced Southwest Assemblies of God University 58-37 two weeks ago.
The WBU Pioneers have been shut out three times this season and have given up 393 points thus far. They average just 18 points per game and have given up 70 more rushing yards (2327) than passing yards (2257) this season. Their offense relies heavily on their passing game that averages 256.56 yards per game compared to their average of 61.6 rushing yards per game. The Aggies need to contain quarterback Anthony Campuzano from finding and hitting his receivers—he has thrown for 865 yards and 4 TDs this season. The Aggies have done a good job this year in stopping the run, but WBU's running game is nothing to be concerned about. The Aggies must shut down the air threat, maintain a solid running game and avoid underestimating the Pioneers.
