After dismantling Lamar Cardinals 56-7, the Sam Houston State Bearkat football team moved up two spots to No.4 in the Sports Network Football Championship Subdivision polls and the Coaches Poll.
This marks the 21st consecutive week that the Bearkats have been ranked nationally in the top 20.
The Bearkats were led behind junior running back Tim Flanders’four touchdowns on 131 rushing yards.
His efforts earned him the Southland Conference (SLC) “Offensive Player of the Week.”
He is now No.3 in the Southland Conference for rushing touchdowns (47) and total TDs (50) and No.6 in SLC rushing yards (3,395).
The Bearkats return to Elliot T. Bowers Stadium for their final home game against Southeastern Louisiana Lions on Saturday at 2 p.m.
They are currently in second place in the SLC standings and are two wins away from clinching a share of the SLC title.
