For the fourth straight year, Bowie State played host to a Division II college playoff game. As they welcomed to town Lenoir-Rhyne who entered Bulldog country with a record of 8-2.

Bowie State jumped out to an early lead behind quarterback Ja’rome Johnson who rushed for a 65-yard touchdown. Much to be expected, Lenoir-Rhyne put up a sound fight after having traveled from the southern mountain edge of North Carolina. With the defense building a turnover wall, and the offense capitalizing on opportunity after opportunity; the Bowie State Bulldogs were able to pull-off a 31-10 victory, and advance to the next round in CIAA playoffs.
