Head coach Todd Moebes' Cooper team is back in the 3rd round of the playoffs, again, and they used a dominant rushing performance to get it done.

The Cougars have been running the ball well all season. However, Friday night's performance was historic.

Cooper's offense gained a school record 435 yards on the ground on the a field that was hard to stand on. So the question, how did they do that on that icy field?

Coach Moebes said, "I thought the guys did a great job of accepting the conditions for what they were, and they weren't going to allow that to be an excuse for them. I mean, it was going to be a reason for them to succeed and not a reason for them to fail or to come up short or to be a reason why they didn't do something. I thought our guys did a good job of accepting what they couldn't control, and that was certainly the conditions."

Cooper tries to advance to the 4th round of the playoffs for the 1st time since the year 2000 on Saturday. They take on Cedar Hill in Stephenville at 2 on Saturday.
