Glendale, AZ…The Dean College (Franklin, MA) football team capped a tremendous fall season by capturing the Valley of the Sun Bowl in dramatic fashion over Glendale Community College. Trailing 25-6 late in the third quarter, the Bulldogs scored 20 straight points to capture its first bowl crown in four tries, 26-25. It was a measure of revenge over the Gauchos, as Dean had fallen to them two years ago in the same bowl game, 10-9.

Our student athletes and coaching staff have worked extremely hard to obtain this honor as it is the fourth football bowl offer in Dean’s history. This speaks to the institution’s commitment to our student athletes and to the talented coaches who support and encourage their play on the field and in the classroom.
