Rams hoping they won't need another miracle in Tuskegee

October 16, 2006

Albany - The goal for the Albany State football team is to win a fourth straight Southern Intercolleigate Athletic conference championship.

The Rams would be in the driver's seat for a fourth SIAC title if they can beat Tuskegee on Saturday.

The Tigers and Lane College are tied for second with one conference loss each.  

Albany State hopes they don't need the kind of miracle they had in their last visit to Tuskegee.

The Rams trailed 26-7 but scored three touchdowns to take a two point lead.

The Tigers kicked a field goal with under ten seconds to play.

But there was still time for Uyl Joyner to throw a hail mary pass that Joshua Johnson tipped to Michael Pless who just got the football over the goal line as time expired.  

Head coach Mike White said "People still talk about that. This homecoming everybody was still talking about the '04 game over there. It was one of the best college games they had ever seen. It was a great game. I just hope we have more points than they do Saturday."

Albany State defensive end Alton Pettway shares the SIAC defensive player of the week award after Pettway had three sackes in Saturday's win over Clark Atlanta.

It is the second time this season Pettway has won the honor.

Freshman running back Gary Neavins is the rookie of the week in the conferecence after he rushed for 131 yards and two touchdowns.

Saturday's game at Tuskegee starts at 2:00 p.m. eastern.
