Football Tramples Brown
Written by Bwog Staff
The stereotypical Columbia football season may be one long fall, but this year’s version would be better described as a roller-coaster, and today’s 28-14 victory over Brown ensured that ride ended on a happy note. Senior safety Andy Shalbrack returned an interception 49 yards for a touchdown at the end of the first half, and first-year quarterback Sean Brackett ran and passed for 322 combined yards to give the Lions a comfortable victory.
The win gives the team a 4-6 record overall, and a 3-4 record in the conference, its best record since 2003. Plus, with the positive end to the season, head coach Norries Wilson’s job security looks a lot better than after the embarassing homecoming loss. And who knows, maybe next year that .500 barrier could fall?
