ACU called time out with two seconds left. After the timeout, the offense, not the field goal unit, returned. They were going for the win, although a l7-yard chip shot by Perry would have tied the game. The Cats tried the play they ran the previous down. However, Northwestern was in a different defense, and Smith, the intended receiver was well covered. Proffitt, who received l0 seconds of pro- tection from his offensive line, scrambled around as the game clock expired. llc fired to tight end David Russell who was open in the end Zone. Russell squeezed it into his arms, and the celebration began. The Cats had an open date the next week before the conference opener against Texas A8Ll in Kingsville. The Javs, ranked in the top 10 since the season started, were fifth in the nation going into the game. The Wildcats. in the poll for the first time, were ranked sixth. ACU trailed l4-O after the Javs' sixth offensive play of the game. Both scores were set up by Wildcat turnovers, and ACU did not catch up, losing its first game This page: bottom lcjt - LSC' Freshman ofthe Year Loyal Projitt drops back to pass during a game against Angelo State Utiiversitr. ACU defeated the Rams 28- 265 bottom right f Marty McWilliams tackles a Northwestern Louisiana rzisher. The Cats defeated NLU 41-38. Football ofthe season 34-27. The ACU offense finally scored two minutes before halftime. Thomas, the big- gest surprise ofthe season, scored his first of three touchdowns. He entered the game when Henderson suffered a separated shoulder, and the freshman from Jasper gained 85 yards on I6 carries. The Cats prepared for Angelo State the next week. Because of his performance the week before, and Henderson's injury, the attention was focused on Thomas. The Wildcats built a 28-6 fourth- quarter lead against the Rams, but allowed ASU to cut the deficit to two points with a pair of fumbles and an interception. The defense held again, however, as safety Vin Smith deflected Ram quarterback Doug Kuhlmann's final two-point conversion pass for a 28-26 win. That wasn't thc only time the Wildcat defense saved the day, though, as it stop- ped the Rams twice at the ACU 5. Second-team, all-conference cornerback Mark Jackson blocked an ASU field-goal attempt, and the defense stopped Ram running back Jerry James on a fourth- down run late in the half. The Rams also had an extra-point kick blocked by Vince Ford, and twice they failed to score two- point conversions. The next week the Cats came back from a l4-3 halftime deficit for a l9-l4 win over East Texas in Commerce. The Lions recovered Thomas' opening series fumble at midfield and took a 7-I lead four plays later. On ACU's next driv the Cats had a first and goal at the 4, bu couldn't score on the fourth down. Thei next possession stalled at the Lion 25, bu Perry kicked a 42-yard field goal to cut th Lion lead to 7-3. ETSU came back however, and scored before halftime. Once again the defense kept tht Wildcats in the game. They were led bf second-team, all-conference end Jim Tut tle who intercepted a pass, recovered : fumble and was in on l0 tackles. The Cats returned to Abilene for the Homecoming game against a weal Stephen F. Austin team. i ACU scored the first two times it ham the ball and after four of its seven first-hal possessions. Meanwhile, the Wildcat defense, led bj all-conference nose guard Richard Flore and honorable mention tackle Dai Niederhofer, held the Jacks to a mere 12 yards total offense in the 31-0 game. The following week against San Houston State could have been called tht "Smith and Proffitt Show." Smith set tht LSC receiving record, accounting for al but 62 of the 282 yards Proffitt threw. The win left the Wildcats 4-l in LSC play heading into the next weeki: showdown with Southwest Texas. Disappointing? Well, maybe. But for z team picked to finish sixth in conference i was a pretty good showing. S Mark Evje. t .. W' www 4 N, I . 4, 1 at 441 My tt K W . 2 . . 4 J. ae an 1 ,. f, ia ,KVA 4 .nv ,of any ' I V, i
