It’s a southern match up on Saturday night at the Riccardo Silva Stadium in Miami, Florida. The Alcorn State Braves make the trip to take on the Florida International Golden Panthers.
This is the first match up between the two teams in recent history. One thing to watch in this game, is when it’s actually played, or if it’s postponed.
With hurricane Irma expected to hit Florida this game might be moved up, or moved to a new location.
Alcorn State Football
The Alcorn State Braves finished with a 5-6 record in 2016 but that was enough to win the East division of the SWAC.
The Braves got this season out to a nice start beating the Miles Golden Bears by a final score of 50-21. They played a really good all around game scoring touchdowns through the air, on the ground, and with the special teams.
Senior quarterback Lenorris Footman played a decent game to lead the team to victory. He threw for 241 yards and one touchdown.
The negatives to come out of this game for Footman though were the turnovers. He threw two interceptions and that can’t happen in this game.
The other big thing this team needs to improve on in this game is penalties. They committed 17 penalties for 166 yards, and that ended up slowing down a couple of drives.
If they want to win this game they need to be more disciplined, or it could be a long night with team only going backwards.
FIU Golden Panthers
On the other side of this match up is the Florida International Golden Panthers, who played the UCF Knights and it got ugly early.
Although the offense actually played decent, the defense couldn’t stop anyone and it led to the Knights running up the score and winning by a final score of 61-17.
Senior quarterback Alex McGough is the guy to lead this team, and he played pretty well in game one. He threw for 281 yards and a touchdown and an interception.
To win this game and have success the rest of the season they need to play better on defense, especially in the secondary.
The Knights threw for 439 yards and four touchdowns through the air. The rushing defense didn’t do great, but it wasn’t as bad as what the secondary did.
They also need to take the lead early in this game. They can’t let the Braves get to an early lead, and think they have a chance in this game.
They need to get the early scores and not take their foot off the gas.
