The WSFL Western States Football League is home to some of the best JUCO, Junior College football teams in America. Part of the NJCAA these squads compete for the right to play in or host a National Title on a regular basis. In Arizona we have the Glendale Gauchos, Scottsdale Artichokes, Mesa Thunderbirds, Phoenix College Bears, Tucson Pima Aztecs, Thatcher Eastern AZ College Gila Monsters, Yuma AZ Western Matadors plus in Ephraim Utah the always tough Snow Badgers.
WEEK 1: The first and biggest game of the day for the WSFL #12 Arizona Western Matadors took place in Colorado against the #6 Iowa Wester Reivers. It was clear that both teams were in need of some offensive help. The only TD was scored by the Reivers and that came after they intercepted AWC. The half ended 7-2 Iowa. The final score, in OT was AWC 25 IW 19.
