Saluki Football Playoff Hopes Still Alive
MACOMB -- The Saluki football team took care of Western Illinois 34-28 Saturday, keeping their playoff hopes alive.

Malcolm Agnew racked up 107 yards on the ground with one touchdown. While West went 16-30 with 2 touchdowns and one interception through the air.
Bryan Presume blocked a Western Illinois FG and returned in for a touchdown for the Salukis.
Also in the win Thomas Kinney booted a 52 yard FG. The kick is the second longest in Saluki football history.
