Florida A&M heads to Atlanta to face Southern University on Saturday.
The Florida A&M Rattlers will look to improve to 3-2 when they face the Southern University Jaguars in front of a nationally-televised audience on Saturday afternoon. The Rattlers come into Saturday on a two-game winning streak, while the Jaguars picked up their first win of the season last weekend.
The Jaguars are out to avenge last season's loss to Florida A&M, and they'll need a better effort on both sides of the ball in order to do so. Southern gave up 38 points to the Rattlers in 2011 and it also turned the ball over four times. That's a tough set of circumstances to overcome.
Southern is off to a solid start defensively, as the team ranks No. 34 in the FCS in total defense. The Rattlers have been middling offensively -- they are No. 56 in total offense -- and the defense has been a major issue.
Kickoff Time: 3:30 p.m ET
