3 takeaways from Larry Harmon’s press conference ahead of UMHB’s quarterfinal matchup

BELTON- After a road trip to San Antonio in the second round, UMHB has earned yet another home game. And at perhaps the most opportune time. 

Coming to Belton on Saturday is Bethel, a team ranked No. 13 in the nation, riding a wave of momentum after back-to-back playoff road wins, including a 30-13 result at Linfield last Saturday. It is easily the toughest opponent UMHB has faced at Crusader Stadium this season.

BELTON- Selection Sunday was different this time around for Larry Harmon.

BELTON- UMHB is officially a playoff team. Not that there was any question as to if the Cru, the defending national champions, would make the playoffs or not. Just the same, UMHB had to lock in its automatic bid to the postseason this past Saturday afternoon against Howard Payne. And that is exactly what the Crusaders did, winning 27-24.

BELTON- You have to go back to 2018 to find the last time UMHB played consecutive road games during the regular season. In those mid-October contests against Howard Payne and Belhaven, the Cru outscored its opponents 104-0. Now, three seasons and two national titles later, UMHB will be looking for consecutive road victories once again.

BELTON- The regular season is halfway over for the fourth-ranked UMHB football team. Of course, if the Crusaders have it their way, this past Saturday’s 38-7 victory over Austin College will mark the first third of a 15-game journey in 2022, and for the most part, UMHB has looked every bit of a national title contender, entering its Week 6 matchup at ETBU with a 3-0 ASC record.
