The Bulldogs will be taking on another undefeated squad in Lackawanna, located in Scranton, Pennsylvania.

MGCCC punched its ticket with a 22-19 win over fourth ranked Northwest, their first MACJC crown since 2010.

The Bulldogs are now 11-0 and will be going for a perfect season when the National Championship Game kicks off Thursday, December 5th in Pittsburgh, Kansas.

WXXV Play of the Day goes to Bulldogs Quarterback Chance Lovertich. As a result of Saturday’s win, the Jackson Prep alum is now a combined 58-1 as a starter between high school and college. His only loss came during a 2016 homecoming game against Presbyterian Christian School out of Hattiesburg and he’s undefeated at Gulf Coast.
