From Post staff reports
Well rested and healthy following an off week, the Cumberland football team has turned up the tempo in practice in preparation for Saturday's Top 25 showdown with rival Shorter College.
Kickoff is set for 12:30 p.m. (CDST) at Barron Stadium in Rome, GA. Live radio coverage begins at 12 Noon on WANT FM-98.9 and on the Internet at gocumberlandathletics.com.
The Hawks (3-1, 1-0 Mid-South) are ranked No. 22 in the NAIA after a 52-34 win over Faulkner last week and will be looking to stay atop the division standings with a win over the Bulldogs (3-1, 0-0), who are making their Mid-South West debut against the Hawks.
Shorter leads the all-time series with Cumberland 4-2, but the Bulldogs have won the last two meetings between the schools.
Cumberland stunned Shorter 14-13 with a touchdown in the final seconds in its last trip to Barron Stadium on Halloween 2009, then outscored the Hawks 15-0 in the fourth quarter while forcing five Shorter turnovers to rally for a 22-14 win over the Hawks in Lebanon last season.
"You plug in the film from our 2006 game with them and it looks just like this year," said CU coach Dewayne Alexander. "They do what they do. They're a Wishbone style option team, they'll throw it maybe five times a game.
"You'd better be prepared for a physical, hard hitting football game whenever Shorter comes around on the schedule. We'll be playing assignment football on defense and we must tackle well."
This years showdown has major implications on the conference and national levels.
Both Shorter and Cumberland made a return to the NAIA poll this week and a win on Saturday would give the victor an inside track to a West Division title.
Cumberland was picked to finish second in the West Division according to the preseason coaches poll, and the Hawks were predicted third.
"Winning Saturday won't make your season, or losing won't break you," Alexander said, "but the winner will come out of that game feeling pretty good with some momentum for the rest of the season."
West Division favorite University of the Cumberlands (Ky.) has already lost two divisional games this season.
Both Shorter and Cumberland are looking to keep pace with current West front-runner Bethel, which stands at 2-0 in league play entering Saturdays action.
HOMECOMING FOR TWO CU PLAYERS -- A pair of former Floyd County stars will get a chance to suit up in front of their hometown fans during Saturdays game.
Former Pepperell star BJ Stewart and ex-Coosa standout Desmond Curtis are members of the Cumberland squad. Curtis is a red-shirt freshman and Stewart is a senior defensive end.
