Florida A&M vs. Bethune-Cookman 2012: Game time, TV schedule, odds and more

Brett Deering

The Florida A&M Rattlers would undoubtedly like to close their season on a high note, but the top-ranked defense of the Bethune-Cookman Wildcats poses a challenge.

The Florida A&M Rattlers finish their season on Saturday with a game against the Bethune-Cookman Wildcats. After losing two of their last three games the Rattlers stand at 4-6, and in facing the 8-2 Wildcats they have a significant challenge in ending their season on a high note.

The Rattlers are coming off a 22-21 win that saw them post 13 unanswered points in the fourth quarter. Damien Fleming went 29 for 41 for 270 yards, his second highest total of the season. He'll likely have trouble repeating that performance against Bethune-Cookman, who boast the best pass defense in the FCS. They're keeping opposing quarterbacks to a 49.7 percent completion percentage and have 19 interceptions on the year.

The Wildcats are averaging 31.8 points per game on offense, while Florida A&M allow an average of 23.2. At 4-3 in MEAC play, Florida A&M has a chance at ending with a .500 in-conference record, but they'll need a bit of luck to do it.

Game Time: 2:30 p.m. ET
Television Coverage: ESPN Classic
Odds: No odds given
