HOTlogoCOPPERAS COVE –  Game two of Saturday’s C.H.A.M.P.S. Heart of Texas Bowl has been canceled due to bad weather in Arkansas. 

The scheduled C.H.A.M.P.S. Heart of Texas Bowl NCAA Division II game between Tarleton State University of Stephenville and Ouachita Baptist University of Arkadelphia, ARK, which was set for Saturday night at Copperas Cove Bulldawg Stadium, has been canceled, due to weather concerns in Arkansas.

According to Bowl Director Vance McAnally, the teams mutually agreed not to play the game, due to expected severe weather and an impending ice storm in Arkansas, which could make travel hazardous for Ouachita Baptist University’s team and fans.

Saturday’s National Junior College Athletic Association contest between Trinity Valley Community College of Athens, TX and Mesa Community College of Mesa, ARIZ will be played at 11 a.m. as scheduled.
