Emporia State climbs in National rankings

The Emporia State football team moves up to 17th in this weeks National Coaches poll, after they improved to 7-0 with a 52-21 win over Lindenwood Saturday.

Emporia State is one of 5 MIAA teams in the Top 20. Northwest Missouri State is ranked 2nd, Missouri Western 4th, Washburn 10th and Pittsburg State 12th.

Emporia State kicker Eli Kuhns has been named the MIAA special teams player of the week.

Homecoming games have been very, very good to the No. 20 Emporia State football team this year.

The Hornets spoiled Lindenwood's Homecoming activities with a 52-21 win over the Lions in St. Charles, Missouri on Saturday

This is the Hornets' second time they have ruined a Homecoming for a road opponent. Emporia State defeated Lincoln 52-14 on Oct. 5. With Emporia State's 63-17 Homecoming win over Southwest Baptist on Oct. 12, this is the first time the Hornets have scored 50 or more points in three straight games since 1997.

Dozie Iwaugwa opened the scoring with a 44-yard run to give ESU a 7-0 lead. After Lindenwood answered with a 14-yard scoring pass from Dillon Miller to Jaron Alexander, Ray Ray Davis took a short pass from Brent Wilson and turned it into a 30-yard touchdown shortly before the end of the quarter.

Emporia State was unable to turn Lindenwood's first mistake, an interception off Miller by Kadeem Satchell, into points. An interception by Gary Fortune off Ben Gomez led to Wilson throwing a 10-yard scoring pass to Davis midway through the second period. Wilson later connected with Davis on an 8-yard strike just before halftime.

ESU and Lindenwood traded scores in the third quarter, with the Hornets using 7- and 1-yard scoring runs by Antonio Brown and Lindenwood using a 23-yard pass from Miller to Jordan Gater and a 25-yard strike to Alex Robinson.

Eli Kuhns added a 30-yard field goal in the fourth quarter to close the scoring.

Offensively, it was another big day for ESU. Wilson was 24-of-34 for 295 yards, four touchdowns and an interception, and he also ran 10 times for 70 yards before coming out of the game in the fourth quarter. Davis was Wilson's big receiving target, catching 11 balls for 130 yards, while Mitchell Foote caught five passes for 50 yards and Austin Willis caught three passes for 61 yards. Brown led ESU rushing with 76 yards on 16 carries, while Iwaugwa added 68 yards on nine carries.

By and large, the Hornets fared very well defensively, limiting Lindenwood to 41 rushing yards and less than 260 yards overall. ESU also recorded four sacks, including two by Aaron Matthews. They also had 4 interceptions, one belonged to Deveon Dinwiddie.

For the second straight week, however, the Hornets had to overcome an abundance of penalties. Emporia State was flagged 15 times for 160 yards a week after being penalized 11 times for 125 yards against Southwest Baptist.

Wilson continues to add to his impressive record collection. The sophomore has now passed Trent Fullen and Pete Jelovic to move to seventh overall in single-season passing yards with 2,212. His second TD pass to Davis puts him in second on Emporia State's record list with 26 scoring tosses this season. Wilson also moved up to fourth in single-season total offense with 2,599 yards.

Davis moved up the university's record charts as well. His trio of touchdowns gave him 12 on the season, good for sixth on Emporia State's single-season list.

Now at 7-0 overall and in the MIAA, ESU has October 26 off and will next face No. 4 Missouri Western in St. Joseph, Mo., on Nov. 2. The Missouri Western game is part of a massive three-game stretch to end the season, including home games Nov. 9 against No. 2 Northwest Missouri State and November 16 against No. 13 Washburn. Lindenwood, meanwhile, falls to 3-4 overall (2-4 MIAA) and travels to Washburn on October 26.
