The Prairie View team held their first home football game on Sept. 7 as they hosted Lincoln on a rainy evening.
The rain was an immediate factor in the game as it caused multiple fumbles and balls that should have been caught, not caught by both the offense and defense.
The Buffalos did not start well as running back Hunter Boone fumbled on their first possession on the Lincoln 20 where Lincoln recovered. However, on the next play the Buffalos got the ball back as Gage Bloodgood got an interception and returned it to the Lincoln 38-yard line.
The Buffalos took advantage on the very next play as Hunter Boone ran the ball in for a 38-yard touchdown. The extra point was no good, and the Buffalos were up 6-0.
