The Angelo State football team received the programs 35th winning season by setting the school record for points in a single game with a 74-24 win over UTPB Falcons on Saturday Nov. 11 in Odessa; now they are looking forward to the Heart of Texas Bowl game.

The team is going to its first bowl game appearance since 1972 when they made it to the Ardmore Shrine Bowl. This is also their first postseason trip since the 2014 NCAA Division II Playoffs.

The Rams will face Washburn University on December 2 at 6 p.m. in Copperas Cove, Texas; this is their first ever match up against each other.

This is ASU’s sixth bowl game in school history. Their first bowl games were in 1950, 1951, 1955 and 1960 as San Angelo College and their fifth one in 1972 as Angelo State University.

ASU has a record of 2-3 of all-time bowl games.

The team’s regular season record was 6-4 and 4-4 in the Lone Star Conference play.

This win marks the third time ASU has had three straight wins and finished with a winning record in the regular season under head coach Will Wagner.

Washburn, located in Topeka, Kansas, went 6-5 this season.
