Despite the short field to work with, the Bulldogs couldn’t punch it into the end zone and concluded the series with a Mante 37-yard field goal. With 8:52 remaining in the third quarter, the Bulldogs now lead 17-6. Time of possession will be key down the stretch. In their last two losses, the Bulldogs have been dominated in the possession department — particularly in the second half and fourth quarter. To do that, the defense needs to force quick Columbia drives and the offense needs to establish the run and string together some positive plays.
