This game will also play a big role in determining the SIAC champion.

The unbeaten Golden Rams lead Morehouse and Fort Valley State by a game in the conference standings.

Morehouse is having one of its best seasons in eighty years.

The Maroon Tigers are led by the conference's top rusher in David Carter.

Albany State has the best defense in the SIAC at stopping the run.

Head coach Mike White says the dirty blue defense still has some problems but they are improving.


Mike White said. "We are not doing good on third and short plays. We are allowing receiver or two to get behind us in third and long. But we're getting better." 

Morehouse won the last meeting in Atlanta two years ago.

Game time is 2:00 p.m. Saturday in Atlanta.
