|How they got here:||Pool A, ASC champ
|You'll know they're playing well if:||They're ballhawking in the secondary. UMHB has only picked off
one pass in the last four games but that's more on the quality of
opponent than anything else. And the run game -- this is Mary
Hardin-Baylor, you know the deal. They ran for 200 yards or
more in every game.
|You'll know they're playing poorly if:||They're throwing too often. UMHB has had some good games throwing the ball but has thrown it away as well. After averaging 24 pass attempts in the first four contests and getting 10 passes picked off, the Cru has thrown 15 passes per game over the final six and thrown just two picks.|
|This season's turning point:||Intercepting the two-point conversion pass of McMurry's Jake
Mullin in the ASC opener, allowing the Cru to hold on against the
War Hawks' furious post-lightning comeback.
|Rushing/passing yards per game:||299.3/165.4
|Rushing/passing yards allowed:||110.9/194.6
|How far can they go?||This isn't an easy bracket, but the Cru can win it.
