BELTON- After being embedded in the hype of the Top 10 matchup against Hardin-Simmons a week ago, getting set for a contest the following week against a winless Austin College team had the potential to be a challenge for the UMHB on Saturday afternoon.
BELTON- Before Saturday night’s game against Southwestern even got underway, there were loud cheers from the crowd. Pete Fredenburg, the architect of the nationally-dominant UMHB football program, was recognized for his legendary role in the program’s history, with the field named “Fredenburg Field” in his honor.
WHITEWATER, Wis.- With just over three minutes remaining in the fourth quarter, the UMHB offense set up from the Wisconsin-Whitewater one-yard line. The UW-Whitewater faithful had been quiet for much of the fourth quarter, and it was easy to see why. The Crusaders of UMHB had backed up their ranking as the top team in the land, and were knocking on the door to a 10-point lead, already up 24-21 against the No. 6 team in the country.
After an amazing year that featured 20 wins for the UMHB football team, it is now time to announce True To The Cru’s Football Players of the Year presented by our gold sponsors.
