Lincoln closes season with loss at Southwest Baptist

Lincoln closes season with loss at Southwest Baptist

November 10th, 2012 in News


Final score: Southwest Baptist 43, Lincoln 12.

This one's for bragging rights - sort of.

When Lincoln travels to play Southwest Baptist at 1 p.m. today in the final Mid-America Intercollegiate Athletics Association and regular season game of the year for each squad, the winner avoids finishing in last place in the league.

"It's incentive to win," Lincoln head coach Mike Jones said. "We want to make sure we get a win. We haven't won on the road. We just want to end the season with a win and go into the offseason with positive feelings."

Lincoln sits at 1-9 overall and in the league, while Southwest Baptist sits at 2-8 in both categories. A Blue Tiger victory would give the teams identical records, but Lincoln would finish ahead of Southwest Baptist based on the head-to-head result.
