The 2012 season for West Texas A&M ended on a sad note Saturday, but it isn't the end of the world.

In fact, things are looking great for next year with plenty of returning players, now with playoff experience.

The NCAA Division II Semifinal Saturday night at #2 Winston-Salem State was a blowout loss, 41-18. The Buffs finish the season 12-3, WSSU remains undefeated at 14-0 and advances to the Championship game next weekend in Florence, Ala.
