UCO at home again versus Emporia State

EDMOND — Central Oklahoma wraps up a two-game homestand and continues Mid-America Intercollegiate Athletics Association play Saturday when the Bronchos entertain Emporia State. Kickoff at 10,000-seat Wantland Stadium is 6 p.m.

UCO is 0-2 on the season and in the league. The Hornets, among the teams receiving votes in the NFCA Division II top-25 poll, are 2-0 overall and in MIAA play.

The Bronchos were picked 10th by the coaches and 11th by the media in the pre-season MIAA poll, while ESU was tabbed for a seventh-place finish by both.

The Bronchos have a 9-4-1 lead in a rivalry that started in 1928 with a 23-6 ESU victory. The Hornets won last year’s meeting in Emporia, Kan., 42-14.

ESU has a 1-0 lead in games at Wantland Stadium, that a 17-7 victory in 2007.

The Bronchos had another good offensive outing in last week’s loss, finishing with 431 total yards — 237 rushing, 194 passing.

UCO ranks fifth in the MIAA in total offense with a 471.0 average through two games.  

The Bronchos are sixth in rushing (210.0 yards/game) and seventh in passing (261.0

Junior wide receiver Marquez Clark has quickly turned into one of the league’s most dangerous offensive weapons. The junior standout caught eight passes for 99 yards and a touchdown last week while also returning four kickoffs for 106 yards and rushing once for two yards. Clark ranks third in the MIAA in all-purpose yards (209.5 yards/game) and is third in receiving yards (118.0 yards/game), having snared 12 passes for 236 yards (19.7/catch).  

He ranks 11th nationally in all-purpose yards and 20th in receiving yards per game. Clark was a first-team junior college All-American in 2011 at Navarro College (Texas) after catching 98 passes for a single-season NJCAA-record 1,639 yards and 14 touchdowns.
