Teams work tirelessly to get ready for the season opener of the college football season, not knowing if they are truly prepared.
On Saturday night, the Bulldogs saw the efforts of the past eight months culminate with a 56-9 victory over the visiting Jackson State Tigers.

Still, it was nice to see the balance the Bulldogs showed offensively during Saturday night's 56-9 victory over the visiting Tigers.
