Bulldogs play at W.Va. Tech Saturday

Cumberlands football team pulled out of Lebanon Friday morning for a nearly nine hour bus trip to West Virginia Tech in Montgomery, W. WVa.

Plans call for the Bulldogs (2-1 overall) to stop en route in Lexington, Ky for a one-hour walk through at the University of Kentuckys Nutter Field House.

Kickoff is set for 12:30 p.m. (CT) Saturday at Mar- tin Field. Live radio coverage begins at 12 Noon on WANT-FM 98.9 as well as an audio feed on the Internet from www.gocumberlandathletics.com.

Its our longest trip of the season, but bottom line -- this is a big football game for us, said CU coach Dewayne Alexander. Historically, they have been very athletic. Quite honestly, they have played (defensively) a little different against every team theyve played so far. They been in both even and odd fronts, so were not sure exactly what well see.

They seem to have some younger guys in the secondary, it looks like theyre playing a lot of zone.

The Golden Bears (1-2) are still reeling after a 69-6 loss at Bethel last week.

CU (2-1) rallied from nine points down to defeat visiting Kentucky Christian 33-17 in last weeks home-opener.
