ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The South Georgia Wildcats have a big game coming up this weekend, as they return to the Civic Center for the first time in almost a month to host Oklahoma City.

The Cats will be looking for their fifth-straight win, and the team is hoping for some help from the fans.

The South Georgia Wildcats will play their last home game of the regular season Saturday night, and the players are looking to pack the Civic Center.

Quarterback Andrico Hines says, "We were joking yesterday, Derrick Lloyd asked me if we wanted to wear all white for the last home game. I was like, 'Yeah, if everybody does. If they white it out.' That would be something nice."

Wide receiver Buchie Ibeh adds, "That would be a beautiful thing. South Georgia, if we can get your participation. Get a piece of white Wildcat paraphernalia, or apparel, or something. Put it on, come in here, and white it out."

Head coach Derek Stingley says he just wants a sell out.

Talk of a White Out was a surprise.

"That's news to me," says Stingley. "If that's what they want to call it, I'd just love for the fans to sell out, if possible. That fan support is huge."

Ibeh says, "We're trying to go out with a bang. I urge South Georgia, come out, get a ticket. You don't want to miss this one."

South Georgia would clinch a playoff berth with a win over Oklahoma City.

Kick-off is set for 7:30 pm.

Wear something white.
