The Lincoln Golden Bears picked up a big victory over Handley last Friday night and in the process earned the KFC Pigskin Roundup Team of the Week honor. The entire team and coaching staff got to enjoy all of the team of the week perks including the meal and the t-shirts provided by KFC. This victory was truly earned. Lincoln fell behind 30-7 at one point and reeled off 27 unanswered to beat the Tigers 34-30.
The victory improves their overall record to 5-2 but, more importantly, a 4-0 mark in the region. The Bears face Childersburg in week eight and with a win they can sew up back to back championships for the first time since 1999-2000.
