Fourteen third quarter points in rainy conditions led No. 5 Texas A&M-Kingsville to a 21-0 win over Texas A&M University-Commerce on Saturday night in Kingsville, Texas.

A&M-Kingsville (3-0) wide receiver Robert Armstrong ran for a touchdown and caught another to lead the Javelinas. In addition, running back Fred Winborn ran for a game-high 149 yards.

In the second quarter, a botched snap forced Lions'punter Cameron Frosch to throw the ball; however, he was called for intentional grounding to set up first and goal for the Javelinas. The A&M-Commerce defense rose to the occasion and held them to a 23-yard field goal attempt that was blocked by Jacoby Veals.

The Lions nearly got on the board in the final seconds of the opening half, but a 36-yard field goal attempt that was blocked by the Javelinas.

On their second drive of the second half, Armstrong caught a five-yard touchdown pass from Nate Poppell to extend the margin to 14-0. In the drive, the Javelinas were sparked by a 37-yard run by Winborn and a 20-yard completion to Delashaun Dean.

On the final play of the third quarter, Poppell completed his second touchdown pass of the game to Dean on a fourth and five play to stretch the lead to 21-0 for the Javelinas. TAMUK had a short field to work with as they took advantage of an Adam Farkes interception.
