"They've come a long way, four straight winning seasons, four straight Magic City Classics, a SWAC Championship, and a HBCU National Championship so these guys have a lot to be proud of," said Maynor when asked about the perseverance of his team. 

Quarterback Aqeel Glass is in his 5th year with the Bulldogs.

Glass threw for a Division 1 Era program-record 462 yards, beating his previous record of 446 yards. Glass also totaled 5 touchdown passes reaching his 100th career mark. 

"I can't be a great quarterback if I don't have great receivers, great O-lineman, and great playmakers around me to do my job so it's been a blessing."

Saturday's game versus Arkansas Pine-Bluff will be the Bulldogs Senior Day. Kick-off is at 1 o'clock at Louis Crews Stadium.
