LAST TIME OUT: After last week’s critical win against Benedict College, the FVSU Wildcats entered the Oct. 1 game against the Tuskegee University Golden Tigers. A record of 1-3 and another conference loss could have serious consequences for a team hungry for a conference title. The FVSU Wildcats were defeated by the Tuskegee University Golden Tigers, 15-18.
The 28th Annual Circle City Classic was a matchup with all the excitement and great play promised. In a high-scoring, SIAC matchup, the Kentucky State Thorobreds fell to the Golden Rams of Albany State, 31-57. The Rams and Thorobreds set several records in the high-scoring battle.

WHAT’S AT STAKE: The game pits two members of the SIAC in a conference contest.
After the loss to Tuskegee, the Wildcats need the win to remain in contention for the conference title. Although the teams play in different divisions of the conference (FVSU in the East, KSU in the West), a win or loss could factor into the final divisional standing for the Wildcats.
For the Thorobreds, a win would give them the first conference victory of the season.
