Junior quarterback Amir Hall threw six touchdown passes as the Bowie State Bulldogs routed the Lincoln Lions, 86-14, during Bowie State University’s Homecoming on Oct. 28 in Bowie, Md. 

Bowie State’s amazing offensive showing against Lincoln set a new school record for the most points scored in a single game. The former record of 83 points was set back in 1975 against Fairleigh Dickson, according to BSU Sports Information.

The win advanced the Bulldogs record to 8-1 overall, and 5-1 against the Central Interscholastic Athletic Association (CIAA). 

Bowie State had essentially put the game away within the first 15 minutes, leading 34-0 by the end of the opening quarter. They scored another 21 points in the second quarter to build a 55-7 lead by halftime.  

Hall only played the first half, during which he scored all six of his touchdown passes, along with 238 passing yards on 14-of-19 pass attempts completed. 

Bulldogs redshirt senior running back Robert Chesson scored two touchdown runs with 135 rushing yards on 12 carries. 

Sophomore return specialist William Flowers also had a career day with 186 punt return yards. He scored two touchdowns on returns of 89 yards and 43 yards. Junior defensive back DeVonte’ High also scored for Bowie State with an interception returned 45 yards for a defensive touchdown. 

Next: Bowie State will play its final game of the regular season on Nov. 4 when it travels to Elizabeth City, N.C. to take on the Elizabeth City State Vikings (4-5 overall, 2-3 CIAA).
