Blazers battle #1Delta State Saturday

Posted: Updated:


VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -
   It is a top ten showdown Saturday night in Cleveland Mississippi where 10th ranked Valdosta State wants to knock off  #1 Delta State.

These two teams are battling for first place in the Gulf South Conference and possibly the number one ranking in the nation.

Delta State has dominated this rivalry with five straight wins over the Blazers.

Ten years ago, VSU ended a five game regular season losing streak by beating the then number one ranked Statesmen in Cleveland.

VSU head coach David Dean is not bringing up the streak this week but would love to see history repeat Saturday night.

 

David Dean said. "You just talk about them being the number one ranked team in the country and another conference game. We are both leading the conference right now because we are both 1-0. So, whoever wins this game is going to have the first step of being the Gulf South Conference champions if they can finish off the last two games."

The game has been moved to 8:00 p.m. Saturday for ESPN3 and the Gulf South Conference television game of the week.
