For the first time in the more than 30 years of Division II football at the UWG, a 13th game will be played in a season, as the 6th-seeded West Georgia Wolves held off a second-half onslaught from 3rd-seeded Tuskegee. The Wolves took a 20-17 victory, the first Division II playoff win for a West Georgia team.
The game was everything that it was billed to be, as it was a slobber-knocking defensive battle from the outset that featured 18 punts between the two teams.

Pi Nu Nursing Honor Society recently hosted a disaster prep zombie challenge at the University of West Georgia.
"Zombie Run is one of those options for us to reach out to the community to educate not only the students but the people around the school and to help them learn how to be prepared in case of a disaster," said nursing student Lorna Sales.
Participants started at the registration table where they received their initial items, such as an ID band. Each table, 12 in all, contained different items that they need to have in their survival kit. Each participant had six flags on them, and all a zombie had to do was take a flag. Those who made it all the way to the end with all their items with at least one flag left were rescued.
