The McMurry Nation is coming off their bye week after winning 4 straight games in American Southwest Conference play.
The week off came a little for head coach Hal Mumme's liking, but he says the team used the week well.
The HSU Cowboys are riding a 4-game winning streak, as well.
The offense is averaging 29 points a game in their winning streak, and the defense continues to improve.
HSU has kept it together through a rough year. The players say the coaches deserve the credit.
HSU and McMurry play for the 22nd time since 1990 at McMurry's Moore Stadium at 2 on Saturday. The Cowboys have won every meeting since restarting the program in 1990.
