Albany - The South Georgia Wildcats put a perfect road record on the line this weekend when they travel to Naples to play division rival Florida.

It is the second of three meetings between these two teams.

The Wildcats can move to within a game of the first place Firecats with a win Saturday.

To get that win, the Cats will likley have to shut down one of the greatest AF2 receivers in Magic Benton.

Benton retired after last season but has been practicing this week for the Firecats with the belief he may be in their lineup Saturday night.

Derek Stingley "If he is there good for him. I like Magic. I like coaching against him. I think he is one of best receivers in the league. If he is coming back, he is going to be a challenge for us and hopefully our players are up for it."  

The Wildcats placed Ray Gant on the injured list with a shoulder injury.

He will miss the next four games.

Wildcats have signed defensive end Rodney Ornbey in his place.
