CU rebounded with Saturdays win against Campbellsville University after dropping a 42-14 decision the previous week at Faulkner University.

Coach Dewayne Alexander's team stands 6-2 overall this season, with the only other loss against 10th-ranked University of the Cumberlands on September 8.

Reed Gurchiek rushed 44 yards for the game-winning score versus Campbellsville and the Cumberland defense allowed just 52 yards in the fourth quarter, stopping the Tigers on downs at the CU nine-yard line and forcing a fumble at the CU 45 in the final period. Michael Hagewood also picked off a tipped ball in the final minute to seal the victory.

The Bulldogs head to Bethel University this Saturday for a 1:30 p.m. contest. The Wildcats defeated Faulkner this past weekend, 33-21, and have won five of their last six outings since starting the year 0-2.

Cumberland plays its final home game of the year on Nov. 3 at 1:30 p.m. against Bluefield College.
