Columbus - Three losses in five games has not knocked the Albany State Rams out of the Division II playoff picture.

The Rams though realize their luck will soon run out with another loss.

Albany State looks to break a two game losing streak Saturday in the Fountain City Classic in Columbus against Fort Valley State.

The Wildcats have won four straight and could slip into the playoff hunt with a win over their archrivals.

Fort Valley State is more interested in ending a six year Albany State winning streak in this series.

The Rams are just wanting to beat anyone after their last three games away from Albany.

Albany State head coach Mike White said "The biggest thing is just taking care of the football. Turnovers and what team makes the least mistakes. What a team to get ready for and bounce back is Fort Valley."

Fort Valley State head coach Deondri Clark said "We just got to do what we do and not shoot ourselves in the foot. We have had a problem with that this season. We have had a couple of ballgames we should have one and some kind of way we let them get out of it."

Albany State and Fort Valley State are ready for the Fountain City Classic in Columbus.

Game time is 2:00 p.m. Saturday at A.J. McClung Memorial Stadium.
