Wow, what a performance by Austin College, going on the road and beating Texas Lutheran with a guy who last week was the 5th string QB. And at the same time, the 'Roos may have found their QB of the future...the freshman had himself a game. Nearly 300 yards of total offense and four touchdowns.

This team needed that victory, badly.

Congrats to AC!   Looking forward to seeing them in SA next week.

Trinity played a much better game at Southwestern this week, especially on defense, but the offense again struggled to get anything going in a 20-7 loss.   At least the Pirates, who clinched the final SCAC championship, didn't set a bunch of all-time conference records this time around.    Congratulations to the Pirates who have come a very long way in a short period of time.

With league football going the way of the dodo after this weekend, the SCAC has put together its all-time CAC/SCAC football team.

A lot of good memories here.   Thanks to the league office for putting this together.

A defensive struggle today in San Antonio where neither team threatened early leading to a scoreless tie at halftime.   Trinity finally got its running game going and pressured the QB leading to two interceptions and a 14-0 win.   Luke Packard had 2 1/2 sacks and set the Trinity career sack record in his last game as a Tiger.

Southwestern completed SCAC play undefeated with a 35-31 win at TLU.   Bryan Hicks threw for 312 yards and 5 TDs, the final one halfway through the fourth providing the final margin.   Marcus Barolle ended his Bulldog career with a 28 carry, 215 yard effort and three TDs.

They had cool commemorative coins made up for the respective coin tosses to commemorate the games being the last in 55 years of football in the SCAC (and predecessor CAC).   I guess Pat will close this board down before too much longer.   Here's to everyone involved in the sport over the years, and best of luck to all the teams as they head to ASC and SAA play next season.

Good luck to all the SCAC football schools on the next stage of their journey.  Very interested to see how the SAA plays out in the future with Trinity and Austin in the mix.

The final all-SCAC football team was announced today:

http://scacsports.com/sports/fball/2016-17/releases/all_scac

Congratulations to all honorees. 

The coaches who select these teams don't have an easy task, but since it's the last one, I'll pick a bone with the DPoY selection.   ;D

Player 1: 
- 60 tackles (12th in SCAC)
- 20.5 for loss (3rd in SCAC/9th in D3)
- 15.5 sacks (2nd in SCAC/2nd in D3)
- 9 QBH
- 1 fumble recovery

Player 2:
- 87 tackles (3rd in SCAC)
- 27.0 for loss (1st in SCAC/2nd in D3)
- 16.5 sacks (1st in SCAC/1st in D3)
- 14 QBH

You can probably figure by now that Player 1 is the 2016 SCAC DPoY.   Player 2, Trinity's Luke Packard, would also have been a worthy selection.
