The Bulldogs played Bryan College at home on Saturday in the last home game of the regular season. The Bulldogs celebrated senior day honoring four seniors who have played this season, Sean Bridges, Andy Cooper, Justin Hicks, and Matt Towry. They also honored Alex Goldston, who redshirted last year and was injured this year before the season started, and Trey Ivens, who has been the manager for the Bulldogs while in school at TWC.

The Bulldogs were able to trip off a point in the second half outscoring the Lions 33-32, but it wasn't enough and the Bulldogs were defeated 72-62.
