Javelinas prepare for Lone Star Conference Test at West Texas A&M


The Texas A&M Kingsville Javelinas (3-0) travel to West Texas A&M (3-0) for their Lone Star Conference season opener against the Buffs. TAMUK starts the season undefeated (3-0) for the first time since 2016.

Kingsville travels to West Texas A&M, a team they’ve lost to in the last three meetings. So far this season, Texas A&M Kingsville head coach Mike Salinas likes the improvement on offense.

Javelinas starting quarterback Jacob Cavazos, who is in a ward of seven, won the job leading in Week 1 and delivered 2 touchdowns, passing for 443 total yards and no interceptions in two games played.

“I felt we moved the ball well. We scored in the RedZone which was an area we were focusing on and we really had limited turnovers until last week. We had three” , said TAMUK Football Head Coach Salinas. “We can’t afford to put the ball on the ground in this conference or turn the ball over from anywhere else, so we have to clean that up. But in terms of offensive production, I thought we moved the ball well, then our defense and our special teams really put us in good positions all night.”

Kickoff against West Texas A&M and their quarterback Nick Gerber is scheduled for Saturday at 7 p.m. in Canyon, Texas.
