Bowie State Bulldogs Cruise 28-7 over The Lincoln University Lions

LINCOLN UNIVERSITY, Pa. (November 1, 2014) Bowie State University football started a little slow but finished strong as the Bulldogs cruised to a 28-7 victory over The Lincoln University.

The Bulldogs defense held Lincoln to 88 total offensive yards with junior Anthony McDaniel leading the Bowie State defense with eight total tackles, which included two sacks and six tackles for a loss. Redshirt senior Paxton Queen (Upper Marlboro, Md.) had a productive afternoon, recording seven tackles (all solo), three tackles for a loss and had one pass breakup.

Bowie State’s offense pounded out 343 rushing yards on 64 carries, both season-highs.

Senior Keith Brown (Temple Hills, Md.) rushed for a season-high 131 yards on 23 carries and scored two touchdowns. Junior Kendall Jefferson (Temple Hills, Md.) carried the ball 20 times for a personal season-best 129 yards and scored one touchdown. Jefferson’s longest run of the contest was a 54 yard jaunt early in the fourth quarter which is a team season-best.

The Bowie State quarterback tandem of junior Trevon Bennett (Fort Washington, Md.) and graduate student Matthew Goggans (Pine Grove, Calif.) completed a combined 4-of-16 passes for a season-low 45 yards.

After back-to-back turnovers by both teams, Bowie State was able to capitalize on an interception by redshirt freshman Britton Savoy (Fort Washington, Md.). Nine plays and 74 yards later, Jefferson rushed nine yards for the score. Senior Mario Diaz-Aviles (Washington, D.C.) added the extra point for a 7-0 Bowie State lead at the 6:24 mark of the first quarter.

Lincoln (1-8, 0-6 CIAA) took advantage of a Bowie State miscue on the rainy and cold afternoon, when Tyahir Mitchell (Wilmington, Del.) picked off a Bennett pass and returned it 45 yards for the touchdown. Brett Arkelian’s (Clovis, Calif.) extra point was good, tying the score at 7-all.

Brown rushed for his first touchdown of the afternoon, pretty much walking in from 12 yards out at the 4:53 mark of the second quarter and Diaz-Aviles added the extra point to give Bowie State a 14-7 lead they would never relinquish.

Bowie State (4-5, 4-2 CIAA) pushed the lead to 21-7 by halftime following a 15-yard Goggans to junior Garry Cropper (Odenton, Md.) pass, catch and score. Cropper led the Bulldog receivers with three catches for 45 yards.

Brown scored his second rushing touchdown of the game with 12:16 remaining in the game and the Diaz-Aviles PAT extended the Bowie State lead to 28-7.

Stephen Scott was Lincoln’s top ground gainer with 90 yards on 29 carries. Edward McKenzie (Patterson, N.J.) completed 7-of-22 passes for 73 yards but was sacked five times.

Akeem Jordan (Washington, D.C.) led Lincoln in reception yards with 37 and Brion Robinson (Silver Spring, Md.) tallied a game-high 11 tackles in the loss.

The Bulldogs will close out the 2014 season at home on Saturday (November 8th) at 1 pm versus the Vikings of Elizabeth City State University. Prior to the game, twelve Bowie State senior football players will be honored in a special pre-game ceremony.
