The Wolves won their first six SAC contests by an average of 23.8 points per game. A thrilling, come-from-behind win over Wingate before a national television audience gave Newberry the school’s third crown, all of which have come in the last 11 seasons, and clinched its first perfect SAC record.
Newberry College football players, coaches, and male support staff and administrators received rings to commemorate Newberry’s third South Atlantic Conference championship. Female support staff and administrators received pendants of the ring face.
The rings were produced by Herff-Jones and were based on the design of the University of Alabama’s rings from the Crimson Tide’s championship in 2012.
