The Bobcats run game proved to be too much for Wesleyan as the Bobcats grab an impressive win in their region opener over the Wolves. The Bobcats ran the ball 61 times for a total of 339 yards and the three headed ground game monster struck again as Watkins, Kiker, and Titus combined for 5 TDs. Wesleyan was able to keep this one close, but the Bobcats defense showed up in a big way in the second half as they held the Wolves to just 6 points down the stretch.
