Stephen F. Austin’s Xavier Gipson (2) is tackled after making a catch during the first half of the team’s NCAA college football game against Texas Tech on Saturday in Lubbock. Gipson led all receivers against Tech with 13 catches for 158 yards.

Two FCS football programs that appear to be heading in opposite directions are set to tangle on Family Weekend in Nacogdoches as the Stephen F. Austin Lumberjacks, fresh off their thrilling 28-22 setback to FBS opponent Texas Tech, host the Devils of Mississippi Valley State.

The game will be the second home game and a non-conference matchup for the ‘Jacks, as they host the Devils Saturday at 6 p.m. on Jimmy W. Murphy Field at Homer Bryce Stadium. The game will be broadcast on ESPN+, with the audio version coming live on KTBQ Radio (107.1-FM). Tickets for the contest can be purchased at www.sfajacks.com/tickets.
