BIRMINGHAM, Ala. - This weekend’s best college football moment in the state of Alabama had nothing to do with the Alabama Crimson Tide or Auburn Tigers.
No, that title goes to the Samford Bulldogs.
Samford, which is a Birmingham-based FCS program that will play at Mississippi State on Oct. 29, took care of Virginia Military Institute 55-21 for its third consecutive victory on Saturday. But even that had little to do with the moment of the week, which goes to Bulldogs LB Deion Pierre for the postgame proposal he orchestrated for his girlfriend.
You can check out the whole thing here, but be warned that it’s sure to tug at your heartstrings:
Teammates broke out into a chant after the successful proposal: “She said yes! She said yes!”
“I won twice today,” Pierre can be heard saying in the video. Indeed, Deion. Indeed.
