Boyle bowl time moved up; Rebels close to adding game
The brand new Boyle County bowl, which will be played for the first time Saturday at Rebel Stadium, has a new name and a new start time.
The doubleheader is now the Stuart Powell Ford Tough Classic thanks to sponsorship from the local Ford dealer. And while previously released schedules said the first game between Mercer County and Collins would start at 5:30 p.m., it will start at 5 p.m. Boyle’s game against Allen County-Scottsville is expected to begin at about 7:45 p.m.
Meanwhile, the Advocate’s Hal Morris reports that Boyle may have found an Indianapolis school to fill the vacancy on its schedule created hearly this week when Hancock County (Tenn.) suddenly canceled its Oct. 7 game with the Rebels. If Boyle and the unnamed Indiana school can reach an agreement, they would play Sept. 16, and Oct. 7 would become the Rebels’ open date.
Here’s the full schedule for both local bowls Saturday:
- Stuart Powell Ford Tough Classic at Boyle County: Collins vs. Mercer County, 5 p.m.; Allen County-Scottsville vs. Boyle County, 7:45 p.m.
- Bob Allen Pigskin Classic at Danville: Anderson County vs. Lincoln County, 5:30 p.m.; Garrard County vs. Danville, 8 p.m.
