BELTON, Texas (KWTX) DeNerian Thomas ran for three touchdowns in the UMHB Crusaders' 26-0 win over No. 6 Hardin-Simmons Saturday night.
After UMHB (5-0, 4-0 ASC) waited out a lightning delay that lasted one hour and 45 minutes, Thomas added two short touchdown runs in a 13-point first quarter for the No. 2 team in the country.
Despite the Crusaders offense turning over the ball three times, UMHB's defense stood tall yet again for its first shutout of the season. Hardin-Simmons failed to record a touchdown for the first time in 256 games.
