Football: Union rolls over Pikeville 63-35

Back in Black: Bulldogs Bulldoze Bears, 63-35

BARBOURVILLE, Ky. – It was a magical night for Union College as it rolled to a 63-35 Mid-South Conference (MSC) Appalachian victory over visiting Pikeville (Ky.) on Saturday.

The excitement began when the Bulldogs came out for the game donning black jerseys for the first time in few seasons.

“I don’t know if it was the black jerseys that helped us out or not,” said head coach Andre Linn. “Our guys have been asking for black jerseys since I took over as head coach, and I said if I can get them, I’ll give them to the team on a special day and just see what happens.”

Fans were unaware of the new jerseys as the Bulldogs (3-4 overall, 1-2 MSC Appalachian) warmed up in their tradition orange home uniforms on Homecoming. But when the team came out for kickoff, Union was dressed in black from head to toe.

Wherever the energy surge came from can long be debated, but the result was left on the field. The 63 points are tied for fifth-most in program history, and the 722 yards in total offense are the most by the Bulldogs since racking up 854 in an 84-55 win over Bethel (Tenn.) on Oct. 9, 2010.
