Oklahoma Baptist logs first football victory since 1940

GEORGETOWN, Texas, Oct. 13 (UPI) -- Oklahoma Baptist University, which this year reinstated its football program after a 73-year hiatus, got its first victory since 1940 in a weekend contest.

The program was disbanded that year and the school hasn't fielded a team since then. But after five losses to open this season, the Bison downed Southwestern University 42-21 in Georgetown, Texas, Saturday to claim its first victory.

Cale Grauer passed 229 yards with two touchdowns while Darryl Fields and Jordan Barnes combined for 289 rushing yards in the victory, in which OBU rolled up 534 yards of total offense.

"My concern was that the kids would lose heart," Bison Coach Chris Jensen said of his new team's 0-5 start. "We have kids that aren't used to that and a university that isn't used to that, but they kept the faith and got it done."
