Did you know: The Tigers enter the contest hoping to snap several streaks for the Cru. UMHB has shut its previous two opponents with a combined score of 144-0. If ETBU comes away with the win, it will have ended a streak of 19 straight wins overall, a 36-straight-regular-season-game-winning streak, as well as 30 straight American Southwest Conference wins and 65 regular-season games at home. ETBU’s only win over the Cru came in a 28-21 overtime victory in 2003. That win prevented UMHB from making the playoffs.
