Provided by Wayland Baptist University

MUSKOGEE, Okla. – The Wayland Baptist football team will have to wait until next week to try one last time for its first road victory of the season after Saturday afternoon's effort fell short against Bacone, 53-0.

The Pioneers (2-6) had no answer for speedy junior running back Tyler Thomas, who rushed for 206 yards and three touchdowns on just 11 carries for the Warriors (6-2.)

Wayland trailed just 7-0 after the first quarter, but Bacone added 21 points in the second quarter to take command. The Warriors added 13 in the third period and 12 more in the fourth.

Wayland managed 18 first downs but was limited to 174 yards by the NAIA's top-rated defense, which sacked WBU quarterbacks 10 times. The Pioneers were held to 28 yards rushing on 39 carries while three quarterbacks completed 18-of-34 passes for 146 yards, most by Anthony Campuzano, who threw two interceptions. Kendall Robertson ran 19 times for 80 yards while Thomas Curry caught a team-best four passes for 37 yards.

It was Bacone's fifth consecutive win. During that streak, the Warriors have outscored opponents, 223-26.

The Pioneers end their season with a return trip to Oklahoma to take on Panhandle State (3-5) at 2 p.m. Saturday in Goodwell. Panhandle State fell on Saturday to Southwestern Assemblies of God University, 28-27 in overtime. A week earlier, Wayland defeated SAGU, 58-37.
