Flowers, Hall, Jordan and Sesay Selected to CIAA Football Week #9 Honor Roll

CHARLOTTE, N.C. – The Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association (CIAA) in conjunction with the conference football coaches and Sports Information Directors released its weekly honor roll and four Bowie State student-athletes were voted as Players of the Week for week nine. Of those honored, the Bulldogs are represented by senior Diontae Jordan (Bladensburg, Md.) as Offensive Lineman of the Week for the second time, junior Amir Hall (Bowie, Md.) as Quarterback of the Week for the seventh time this season, junior Lansana Sesay (Bowie, Md.) as Receiver of the Week for the second time and sophomore William Flowers, III (Baltimore, Md.) was named Special Teams Player of the Week.



Playing his final regular season game in Bulldogs Stadium, Jordan was rated the top offensive lineman for Bowie State, helping the team account for 562 yards of total offense versus Lincoln (Pa.). Hall and most of his Bulldog starters played slightly over two quarters of action in Saturday's 86-14 Homecoming thumping of Lincoln (PA). Hall completed 14-of-19 passes for 238 yards and tied his own school single-game passing touchdowns record with six. Sesay pretty much simply outran the Lincoln (PA) secondary on Saturday, hauling in four receptions for a game-high 139 yards, scoring touchdowns of 39 and 48 yards. Flowers accounted for 186 all-purpose yards, returned two punts for touchdowns (89 yards and 43 yards) and added two solo tackles in Bowie State's easy win over Lincoln (PA).

Bowie State University will close out the regular season with a road game at Elizabeth City (N.C.) State University on Saturday
 (November 4th) afternoon at 1 p.m. and are still in the hunt for the CIAA Northern Division crown and a trip to the (November 11th) conference championship game in Salem, Va. The Bulldogs are ranked 20th in the latest American Football Coaches Association (AFCA) Coach’s Poll and 5th in NCAA Super Region 2 Poll. Bowie State holds an 8-1 overall record, 5-1 mark in the CIAA and 3-1 in the Northern Division.


Championship Outlook
The 2017 CIAA Football season has been an exciting one, but several teams will have to continue to give their all in this final week of regular season play and the tell-all for CIAA Championship contention. In the event of a tie (based on conference winning percentage) the CIAA will determine conference championship appearances on November 11 in Salem, VA by the following criteria:

Northern Division Scenarios
If Virginia State University wins this weekend (vs. VUU), they will hold a perfect 7-0 conference record and advance to the championship with the Northern Division title secured.



If Virginia Union University wins this weekend (vs. VSU) and Bowie State University loses (vs. ECSU), Virginia Union and Virginia State will both hold conference records of 6-1. Due to the head-to-head tiebreaker scenario, VUU would advance to the CIAA Championship with Saturday’s victory over VSU.
If Bowie State wins (vs. ECSU) and Virginia Union wins (vs. VSU), a three way-tie will be held by BSU, VUU, and VSU as all teams will be 6-1 in conference play. Each team will have a single loss to one of the three-way tie teams. The next step in determining the Northern Division Champion will be by point differential. Virginia State is +12 due to their 47-35 victory over Bowie State. Bowie State is +18 due to their 40-22 victory over Virginia Union.

This means that Virginia Union will have to beat Virginia State by a minimum of 19 points to secure the Northern Division title. If Virginia Union does not beat Virginia State by the minimum 19 points, Bowie State (+18) will appear in the championship game because they will have the differential advantage over VUU and over VSU’s +12 victory margin.

If Virginia Union beats Virginia State by exactly 18 points, VUU and BSU will both hold a victory margin of +18 points. With the same conference percentage, both 6-1, head-to-head will be awarded to Bowie State due to their 40-22 victory over Virginia Union and Bowie State will advance to the CIAA Championship.

Southern Division Scenarios
If Saint Augustine’s University wins this weekend (vs. Shaw) and Fayetteville State University (vs. WSSU) wins, they will both hold a 5-2 conference record. The FSU Broncos will advance to the Championship from the Southern Division due to winning the head-to-head competition versus the Falcons on Saturday, October 21.

If Saint Augustine’s wins this weekend (vs. Shaw) and Winston-Salem State University (vs. FSU) wins, they will both hold a 5-2 conference record. The SAU Falcons would advance to the CIAA title game due to winning the head-to-head competition versus the Rams on Saturday, October 14.

If Saint Augustine’s falls to the Bears of Shaw University, the winner of the Fayetteville State vs. Winston-Salem State game will advance to the Championship with a 5-2 conference record. SAU and the loser (FSU vs. WSSU) will drop to a 4-3 conference record.
