Snow College has won eight straight football games by an average of 32 points.

The 10-1 Badgers are the undefeated champions of the Western States Football League and the fourth-ranked team in the country.

Next stop: Syracuse, N.Y.

Snow journeys to the Carrier Dome Bowl on Saturday, when the Badgers will face unbeaten and third-ranked ASA College of Brooklyn, N.Y.

Kickoff is 11 a.m. MT.

Under second-year head coach Tyler Hughes, Snow has enjoyed one of the best regular seasons in school history while securing its 10th consecutive bowl bid.

"First, we are thankful for the opportunity to play in a bowl game," Hughes said. "Second, we are excited to play such a great team in an incredible venue."

Hughes called the Carrier Dome "a world-famous arena."

Since a 47-30 loss at Georgia Military on Sept. 8, the Badgers have ridden a high-powered offense and smothering defense to their first outright WSFL title since 2008.

Snow is led by sophomore quarterback Christian Stewart, a Timpanogos product who has thrown for 34 touchdowns this season.

He is one of 69 players from Utah high schools on the roster.

The Badgers also count on running back Breon Allen of Daytona Beach, Fla. The tank-like 180-pound sophomore averages 146 rushing yards per game — tops in the country.

ASA College is 9-0, including a 30-29 victory over then-No. 3 Nassau (N.Y.) Community College to end the regular season.

The Avengers rallied from a 29-20 deficit in the last eight minutes and won the game when Cherchen Aloema kicked a 36-yard field in the final seconds. —
