Saturday, September 29, 2012 | 12 p.m. ET | 1440/1470 AM HISTORY IN THE MAKING This marks the third meeting between Bluefield College and Union College but the first since 1927 ... that year BC went 4-2-3 for its first of nine straight winning seasons as coach Ott and B.E. “Mullie” LeNoir put Bluefield College on the map with a dynamic passing attack matched by several dominating running backs that included the nations scoring champion, Pete Young in 1933. That season, Young was joined by end Cedric Roe as Honorable Mention All-Americans in a list that included Burger from the University of Virginia and Allen from West Virginia University. THE LAST TIME Coach Marshall Shearer’s squad blasted Union 33-0 as Beres and Smith shined for the winning Bluefield eleven in Barbouusville, Ky., on Oct. 29, 1927.

After the break Bluefield scored another touchdown in the third quarter as the visitors ran their lead to 19-0. Smith grabbed seven catches while Jimmy Blosser made four catches as BC completed 12 passes on the day. Smith, an end and quarterback was according to the Bluefield Daily Telegraph, “shining brilliantly for the Bluefield team.” In the fourth quarter Bluefield tacked on two more touchdowns as coach Shearer used all 24 in his traveling squad and “all performed creditably.” SERIES HISTORY Bluefield holds a 2-0 mark against their opponents from Barbourville, Ky., and holds a 65-6 advantage all-time in points scored between the two encounters.
