As the Spartans, Chiefs and […]

Oilers 3 on the trot

Spartans Lets go bowling

Spartans 12 – 0 Razorbacks With past Spartans and Hogs in attendance, the 2017 outfits put on a dull display of turnovers, one series in the first quarter the Spartans fumbled, with the hogs returning the favor two plays later.

Spartans Turn it over

Spartans 26 –6 Chiefs The Chiefs took advantage of a sloppy Spartan opening quarter (3 turnovers) and took an early lead, before Ottens scored via the ground giving the Spartans a lead they would never relinquish.

Week-05-Spartans-v-Eagles-03 Passing trend

Spartans 26 – 2 Eagles Rushing the ball is certainly no trend for the Spartans, even after importing a new QB, their commitment to the run is astounding, but when finals come, will it be their undoing?

Eagles-V-Oilers-01 Eagles for the W

Eagles 31 – 6 Oilers The Eagles and Oilers both headed into week 0-2, the big question being which team would rebound from the week prior (Eagles 51-0 defeat, and the Oilers losing 32-6)?

Hogs-V-Eagles-08 50 Burger

Spartans-V-Oilers-04 Running port to port
