**For Immediate Release** Aggies Try to Break Even —By Daulton Perry on 11/08/2012 Goodwell, Okla.—The Oklahoma Panhandle State University football season is coming to an end and where better to end it then at home?

The Aggies played great in their 67-14 win over Wayland Baptist last Saturday and look to keep things going to end the season against their upcoming opponent—Langston University. The Lions come into this game with a solid 5-4 record, but struggle on the road where they are only 1-3.

The Lions have a well-rounded offensive attack that averages 261.7 yards per game this year. They do a good job of keeping the opponents' running game to a minimum, but give up big plays in the passing game. They allow 236.7 yards per game and most of that is through the air. The back-up running back Kendrick Roberson has only play in four games, but he has made the most out of them as he has averaged 104 yards per game on the ground. The Lions run a dual quarterback system with Jac'Quon Miles and Brendon Crawford, but Miles gets the bulk of the snaps throughout the game. The leading receivers for the Lions are Kyron King and Sheldon Augustine, who have five of six Lions TD catches between them.

The Aggies have a tough matchup this weekend, but if they are able to pull out the victory then they will end the season with a 5-5 record and can go into the off-season on a good note. The Aggie football team seniors will be honored prior to the kick-off.

In addition, everyone is invited to enjoy the free chili cook-off. Tasting begins at 11 a.m. and will go through 1 p.m. unless the chili runs out earlier! Teams will be set up in the parking lot behind Oscar Williams Field House and tasters are encouraged to vote for the People's Choice award.

Kincaid Coach and Rivercity Sportswear are sponsoring this week's game. Admission to the football game is $5.00 for adults and $2.00 for children ages 5-12 and seniors. Tickets can be purchased at any Epic Touch location as well as at the stadium the day of the game.
