The Vicksburg Bulldog football team gets another crack at the Three Rivers Wildcats as they will face off one more time in the 2014 season in the first round of playoffs, at 7:30 p.m., Friday, Oct. 31 in Vicksburg.

This marks a turnaround for the program that went 3-6 last year. Mike Roy pointed out to the team at their TV selection viewing party on Sunday night of history in the making. Vicksburg has never hosted a home playoff game, especially in its new stadium. The Bulldogs have never won a playoff game so they can carve some notches on the record books, if successful.

They lost to Three Rivers in regular season play 25-6 in a game that could have been much closer if the team hadn’t suffered a letdown in the fourth quarter when Three Rivers marched down the field in quick succession to score two touchdowns.
