BARBOURVILLE, Ky. - The Union football returns home this week and is looking to get regained its winning ways as the Bulldogs will play host to the Wildcats of Bethel (Tenn.) on Saturday.

Kickoff is set for 12 p.m.

Union leads the series with a 6-4 record. In the Bulldog victories, Union is averaging 52.6 points. However, the Bulldogs average only 13.7 points in the games Bethel wins.

The Bulldog defense has quietly become a force in the NAIA, especially against the pass. Union ranks ninth in the nation in total sacks (19.0) and 10th in sacks per game (3.2). The Bulldogs are also 4th in pass defense as they are allowing only 131.7 passing yards per game.

However, Bethel enters the contest more of a running team. The Wildcats rank 15th in total rushing yards (1,229) and 19th in rushing yards per game (204.8).
