Bulldogs vs. Black Knights - 1937

When you think about football in Knoxville your mind almost immediately goes to the Volunteers.  There was another school in town that sported a football team.  Knoxville College, a historically black liberal arts school, offered an educational opportunity for the African-American community.

I don't know much about the athletics at Knoxville College.  I came across this 1938 annual at the Digital Public Library of America and thought that it should be shared.  I'll be showing the images and game summaries from the 1937 season.
