ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The Albany State Rams are ready for their first game at the Rams Den on Saturday night.
Their opponent is a team that paid a visit to the ASU Coliseum last November in the Division II playoffs.
Albany State will host South Atlantic Conference champion Wingate on Saturday night.
The Bulldogs opened the season with a double overtime loss to Valdosta State over the weekend and lost by two to the Rams last year in the playoffs.
Albany State is coming off a late second win over Savannah State in the Music City Classic.
Head coach Mike White would prefer that his team not need any last minute miracles to pull out a win this week.
Mike White said. "We are going to have to be able to control the ball and put points on the board whenever we can. Defensively, we are going to have to get some stops. They are definitely going to be tough. The two receivers they have got. The great quarterback they have. It is going to be a challenge but I think our defense is going to play a little better than they did last Saturday."
Albany State and Wingate play at 7:00 p.m. Saturday at the ASU Coliseum.
