A history-making season will continue
for the Brevard College Tornados Football
team, who have been selected to play in a
postseason bowl game for the first time in
program history. Brevard (7-2, 5-2 USA
South) will play in the Eastern College
Athletic Conference (ECAC) Division III
Scotty Whitelaw Bowl vs. host Carnegie
Mellon University (8-2, 7-2 PAC) this
Saturday, Nov. 23 at 1 p.m. at Gesling
Stadium in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
Brevard and Carnegie Mellon were two of
eight teams selected to a total of four ECAC
Division III Bowl games. The matchup in the
Scotty Whitelaw Bowl will mark the first-ever
meeting between the two institutions.
Brevard, under the direction of third-year
Head Coach Bill Khayat, won seven games
in the regular season to match the school
record for most single-season victories in
the NCAA-era. School records were also
set this regular season with a .778 winning
percentage and five league victories in USA
South Conference play. Moreover, BC went
4-1 in road games this season which also tied a
school record for road wins in the NCAA-era.
The Tornados enter the Scotty Whitelaw Bowl
riding a four-game win streak dating back to a
26-20 win over N.C. Wesleyan on October 26.
Over the winning streak, Brevard has outscored
its opponents 99-35, with three of the four wins
coming on the road.
The month of November has been a stretch
of dominance for the Tornados, especially
on the defensive side of the ball. BC has
outscored its opponents 73-15 and has not
allowed a touchdown in November. The no
touchdowns allowed streak for the Tornado
defense is currently at three straight games and
12 consecutive quarters. Over the three games,
BC has shutout its opponents in eight different
Brevard, which finished in a tie for second
place in the USA South Conference, led the
conference through the regular season with
a school-record 19 interceptions.
Carnegie Mellon, a member of the
Presidents’ Athletic Conference, will be
making its seventh all-time trip to an ECAC
Bowl game. The Tartans finished their 2019
regular season with three straight wins
capped off by a 24-21 win over then 20th-
ranked Case Western this past Saturday.
