UIW vs Prairie View A&M Preview
Incarnate Word (2-0) looks to keep its strong start to the season going when facing Prairie View A&M (1-1) on Saturday.
The UIW Cardinals rolled past the PVAMU Panthers 40-9 last season. The Cardinals went on to a 10-3 season and nearly ousted defending FCS champion Sam Houston in the p layoffs. The Panthers finished 7-5, which concluded with a competitive contest against Deion Sanders’ Jackson State squad.
UIW jumped out the gate this season with a 65-29 route of Southern Illinois followed by an impressive FBS win at Nevada, 55-41. Cardinals quarterback Lindsey Scott Jr. threw for 406 yards and four touchdowns against the Nevada Wolfpack.
Scott has a big season going so far with 797 yards and 10 touchdowns versus an interception. He completes 70% of his passes and averages 15.9 yards per completion. He can make plays with his legs, too. Scott ahs 55 yards and a touchdown amid 21 carries.
Marcus Cooper leads the Cardinals in rushing with 116 yards and a touchdown on 23 carries. Cooper averages five yards per carry, but second-leading rusher Jarrell Wiley averages even more on the ground — 7.1 yards per attempt. Wiley has 107 yards and a touchdown on 15 carries.
Cardinals wide receiver Brandon Porter showed he is a threat to run the ball with a 29-yard run once this season. Porter has six catches for 86 yards and a touchdown thus far.
Darion Chafin leads the Cardinals in receptions with 11 catches for 368 yards and three touchdowns. Taylor Grimes also poses a threat in the passing game. Grimes had nine receptions for 227 yards and two touchdowns thus far.

Panthers quarterback Trazon Connely can make plays. He has a 51.2 completion percentage, but he can also run with the ball — 121 yards and two touchdowns against Texas Southern.
