CU hosts "Black Out" game Saturday

  Email   Print

Coach Dewayne Alexanders team comes in 5-2 overall and 1-1 in the Mid-South Conference West after dropping a 42-14 decision on the road last week at Faulkner.

The Bulldogs tumbled from No. 16 in the NAIA all the way down to No. 25 after taking the hit in Montgomery, Ala.

Campbellsville stands 2-5 overall / 1-2 in the West following a 28-23 victory at Lindsey Wilson a week ago. The Tigers started the season with four consecutive losses, but have turned a corner -- winning two of their last three contests.

Theyre playing good football as of late, Alexander said. They had some struggles early in the year with some young guys in the lineup, but they seem to have settled down. Those guys have grown up some and are playing with a lot of confidence right now. Weve always had knock down, drag out games with Campbellsville and I expect this one to be no different.

Canned food driveCU invites fans to take part in a canned food drive Saturday as nonperishable items will be collected in boxes located at the two ticket entrances to Nokes-Lasater Field. All food items collected will be donated to Josephs Storehouse in Lebanon.

Brother vs. brotherFormer Mt. Juliet High standouts George Nwokoji is a sophomore running back for Campbellsville while his brother Michael Nwokoji is listed as a redshirt sophomore. Michael saw his first action of the season last week at Faulkner. Former Mt. Juliet High QB Robert Hill is listed as a senior on the Campbellsville roster and has seen action in seven games.

Turnabout fair playCampbellsville agreed to move the game time to 6 p.m. after Cumberland did pretty much the same thing last year for the Tigers.

They kind of showcased their renovated facility in a night game with us, and they were good enough to return the favor, Alexander said.
