Albany -- Sometimes things work out exactly the way you like them to.
The Albany State football team was in the drivers season two weeks ago, sitting in first place in the SIAC and in control of their own destiny.
Then the Rams fell on the road at Tuskeegee.
Suddenly ASU needed a lot of help for a chance at their fourth straight conference championship.
They got it.
Saturday Albany State went on the road and beat Morehouse 16-6.
Tuskeegee picked up its second conference loss 10-6 at Clark Atlanta, and Lane lost at home to Fort Valley State 41-27.
All that means the Rams are now a half-game up in the conference race.
Albany State head coach Mike White says they still have a big game to take care of against Fort Valley, but after hearing the news it felt like they won twice on Saturday.
"It was huge for everything to fall into place as it did," says White. "We got back here and found out the other teams had lost, and were running around like we had won another game. So we're excited, and we're looking forward to this week's game."
The Rams play Fort Valley State in Columbus in the 17th annual Fountain City Classic Saturday at 1:30pm.
