CIAA Champs Group ShotIn 2017, Bowie State hosted Delta State in a NCAA playoff game, falling to the Statemen 45-35.

Bowie State is looking to continue a record-breaking season into post-season play. Before receiving a berth to the 2018 playoffs, the Bulldogs secured the CIAA championship victory, defeating Fayetteville State 30-10.

From the opening kick-off, the Bulldogs never looked back. Bowie State's Amir Hall won Nationwide Most Valuable Player with four total touchdowns with 180 yards passing and 139 yards rushing. Hall tied a CIAA Championship record three rushing touchdowns.

"It was a great accomplishment to win the CIAA Championship yesterday and put ourselves in position to host a D2 Region playoff again," said Bowie State head coach Damon Wilson.
