Valdosta State is the third seed in the six team super region two and will host sixth seed North Alabama.

This is the fourth time in the last six years the two Gulf South rivals have met in the playoffs.

The good news for VSU who won the regular season meeting in Florence is in the last two meetings.

The team that has won the regular season meeting also won in the playoffs.

VSU coach David Dean knows the Lions will be roaring into Bazemore-Hyder this Saturday.

 

David Dean said. "I guarantee you it is personal for them. We shut them out up there. It is the first time in a long time they have been shut out, at home and on t.v.. 5-0 is not a very easy score to swallow. i know they are going to come down here with an attitude they want a lot of revenge. We have got to be ready for that."

Game time is 1:00 p.m. Saturday at Bazemore-Hyder Stadium.

The winner plays at Delta State on November 27th.

 

 

It did not cost the Blazers a home game.
