Cumberland closes out the home portion of the 2013 football season Saturday afternoon as longtime rival Bethel comes to town for a Mid-South Conference West Division contest.
Kickoff is set for 1:30 p.m. at Nokes-Lasater Field with live radio coverage on WANT FM-98.9 starting at 1 p.m.
The two football programs have played every season for the past 10 years and 14 times since 1993 with CU holding an 8-6 advantage in the series.
Last season, Bethel scored twice in just over a minute in the third period and the Wildcats broke up a two-point conversion attempt with 2:20 remaining, hanging on for a wild 32-30 win.
The Bulldogs stand 4-4 overall following last week's 24-19 loss at Campbellsville.
Bethel slid to 2-7 on the season after a 58-7 home loss to Faulkner.
Senior Day activities will start at 1 p.m. as the CU athletic department recognizes 23 senior members of the football team, including:
Clay Anderson, Sam Andrade, Beau Baker, Dalton Burge, Tucker Cathey, Zach Douglas, Tyler Emmetts, AJ Harmon, Mario Hill, Dren Johnson, William Judson, Dillon Kirkham, Nick Lennox, Kyle Long, Simon Moriarty, Michael Nwokoji, Naaman Stillwell, Courtland Styles, Jr., Grant Theall, Josh Walker, Taylor Watson, Jarred Williams and Josh Workman.
