Saturday, October 27, 2012 | 1 p.m. ET | 100.1/100.9 FM HOMECOMING Football is back, and so is the combination of football and homecoming, as the Rams (0-8) host Lindsey Wilson (2-6) today in a Mid-South Conference game at Mitchell Stadium. The last time Bluefield played a football homecoming game they defeated Rio Grande, 30-7, on Nov. 20, 1941, the final game of the program before it was reinstated after 71 years. Richard “Dick” Bogdan scored the final touchdown in that win. IN NEED OF WINS Each club enters the game desperately in need of a win. The Rams are 0-8, 0-3 MSC, while the Blue Raiders have dropped five straight games to fall to 2-6, 0-3 MSC, after entering the season just outside the NAIA Football Coaches Preseason Top-25 Poll.

October 27 and the ninth game are key stats in what history says. When Bluefield started football originally in 1922 the team failed to win a game, they also failed to score a single point. In BC’s second season they suffered four straight shutouts to open the season. Then on Nov. 17, 1923 BC scored its first points in program history as they rumbled to a convincing 24-0 victory over Alderson Academy (W.Va.). Bluefield is also undefeated in two games previously played on this date in history, October 27. In those games BC held its opponents scoreless, drawing a 0-0 stalemate with Roanoke College JV (Va.), in 1923 and defeated Bridgewater (Va.), 18-0, in 1928. LINDSEY WILSON RECAP Seven turnovers, including two interceptions returned for touchdowns, doomed Lindsey Wilson College in a 35-7 loss to Belhaven (Miss.) on Saturday (Oct. 20) at Blue Raider Stadium.
