Bulldogs look to run over Bears

PERKINSTON — No. 17 Mississippi Gulf Coast heads into its Thursday showdown with Southwest boasting the nation's leading rusher.

 

Deandre Torrey (Fr, Gautier/Gautier) has 832 yards on the ground through the first six games. He and the Bulldogs (4-2, 2-1 MACJC South) will take on the Bears (0-5, 0-3) at A.L. May Memorial Stadium at 7 p.m.

 

"Deandre comes to work every day. He's a self-starter," Gulf Coast coach Chad Huff said. "He does a good job of understanding the blocking schemes up front. The offensive line is doing a tremendous job. Coach (Les) George has those guys playing really physical right now."

 

The game will be streamed online at https://livestream.com/BulldogLIVE/events/7791177. You can also listen at SuperTalk 103.1 FM.

 

Torrey is coming off a 201-yard rushing game, his fifth time over 100 yards this season. Running mate Terrion Avery (Fr, Stone/Wiggins) has 515 yards himself, good for 18th in the country and sixth in the MACJC.

 

The Bulldogs are averaging 302.2 yards per game on the ground, fourth in the country. Southwest is allowing 277.8 yards rushing, third worst in the NJCAA.

 

"They lost a lot of guys early to some injuries," Huff said. "The quarterback has been back and forth with injury with Juwan (Adams). He's back and looks like he's full speed."

 

Gulf Coast has won the last 10 games in the series. The Bulldogs are still fighting for a playoff position. They are third in the South behind Hinds (4-0 South) and Jones County (3-0 South), needing to get to second to clinch an 11th straight trip to the postseason.
