For the first time in program history, Incarnate Word defeated a ranked opponent on Saturday, a 45-17 win over No. 8 McNeese at Benson Stadium in San Antonio, Texas.

With the victory UIW moves into a three-way tie for first place in the Southland Conference, alongside McNeese and Central Arkansas.

The Cardinals wasted little time getting on the board in this one.

After Malick Phillips picked off a pass on just the second play of the game, the UIW offense marched 50 yards in six plays to grab an early 7-0 lead. Philip Baptiste capped the drive with a 20-yard touchdown catch, delivered by Jon Copeland.

Copland tossed for 236 yards and three touchdowns.

Incarnate Word dominated the first half in its entirety, taking a 28-3 lead into the locker room after Copeland scored on a four-yard run to cap the first half scoring with 2:01 to play in the second quarter.

The second half was more of the same. McNeese scored first—but UIW score plenty.

Baptiste caught his second touchdown of the game with 1:50 to play in the third quarter to push the lead to 28 points at 38-10.

The teams traded scores in the fourth quarter, as the Cardinals’ advantage was never in jeopardy.

New Hampshire Special Teams Has Been, Well, Special

There have been many years when New Hampshire would keep its offense on the field if it faced a fourth-down situation anywhere near the opponent’s 25-yard line. It’s probably safe to say those decisions had less to do with the coaching staff’s belief in the offense than it did a lack of confidence in the kicking game.
