Longtime rivals Cumberland and Campbellsville will hook up Saturday for a Mid-South Conference West Division game. Kickoff is set for 1:30 p.m. (Central) at Finley Stadium. Live radio coverage begins at 1 p.m. on WANT FM-98.9.

The Bulldogs enter Saturday’s game 4-3 overall / 1-1 in the MSC West following last week’s 44-7 home loss to Faulkner.

The Tigers stand 3-3 overall / 2-0 in the West and were idle last week. Back on Oct. 19, Campbellsville lost to Georgetown College by a score of 19-14.

Utilizing a spread offense with three and sometimes four wide receivers, the Bulldogs have run 63 percent of the time in 2013.

Cumberland ranks 12th nationally in total rushing offense (1,525) and 13th in rushing yards per game (217.9).

The Bulldogs will be without the services of tailback Michael Nwokoji -- who missed most of the second half of last week's game with Faulkner with a foot injury.
