And the start of the game was ominous for the Lions as on their first possession, on a bad snap on a punt, lead to a safety to give the Kangaroos a 2-0 lead.
With nine minutes left in the first quarter, Joseph Garcia hit David Howard on a seam route as Howard beat the AC safety by two steps.
With a perfect pass from Garcia, Howard ran in for the 59 yard strike.
A missed extra point put SAGU up 6-0.
At half the Lions has 180-yards of total offensive to the Kangaroos 99-yards. Howard had racked up 130 yard of receiving. It took most of the third quarter, but Austin College put together a 16 play 86-yard drive which ended with a one yard touchdown run. After a missed two-point conversion and the Lions led 13-8.
Next the Lions travel to Alpine for a Saturday contest with Sul Ross University. This time they go having already entered the win column.
