Albany - The South Georgia Wildcats division title hopes looked gone after a 15 point loss at division rival Florida three weeks ago.

The Wildcats can get back into contention with a win in the third and final meeting of the regular season with first place Florida on Saturday.

After a 6-0 start, the Firecats have lost their last two road games.

South Georgia feeling confident they can salvage the final of three meetings with Florida after their 84 point performance last week against Daytona Beach.

Florida's defense is tops in the AF2 in scoring defense and have held the Wildcats to their two lowest point totals this season.

Wildcats quarterback Andrico Hines said "I really don't feel it is their defense. I really feel that is us shooting ourselves in the foot everytime we play them. We just have to come out and take care of the ball and execute. We should be fine."  

South Georgia Wildcats go for their third straight home win Saturday at 7:30 p.m.  against Florida Firecats.
