2007 PRINCIPIA COLLEGE PANTHERS FOOTBALL (1-8 final record, 1-7 conference)

Principia looks to avoid a winless final season in the UMAC. Can the Panthers pull off an upset this year against TBC? And how bad must it feel to be underdogs against Trinity Bible College?

The UMAC is dropping football after this season.  However, the SLIAC is adding football next year, and has invited Principia to join them.  Trinity Bible's Lions will have to carry on as an independent team.

As always, here's their football homepage.  Links will go to a box score once the game is over.
