The University of the Cumberlands (UC) football team came into their NAIA FCS Semifinal round matchup looking for a first in school history. The Patriots have already rewritten history this season with a #1 ranking and a 12-0 record. The Patriots would need a win against NAIA power Carroll College for a trip to the NAIA National Championship for the first time in school history. Could the Patriots continue their momentum and complete their “Road to Rome”?
When you get to the final four in any sporting event, you can expect a battle. The best way to describe this game was a heavyweight title fight that saw each team give its best shot. The first quarter was a clear example, as each team exchanged offensive possessions without any team finding the end zone as the Patriots were shutout for the first time in the 1st quarter all season. Carroll College wasted no time in the 2nd quarter though as they capped off a 6 play, 69 yard touchdown drive off with a Dustin Rinker touchdown run, giving Carroll the 7-0 lead.
In this era of gaudy offensive stats, this game reverted back to one that was dominated by defense, and perhaps to some extent by the weather conditions at game time. Belfry did all of their damage on the ground (235 of their 244 yards of total offense came from running the football), while Wayne County was 12 of 30 with two interceptions through the air for 169 passing yards (but only rushed for 39). Belfry was 3 of 12 in third down conversions; Wayne County just 1 of 11.
