TALLAHASSEE, Florida -- It might be homecoming for Florida A&M, but Saturday’s game will be one of the Rattlers’ biggest challenges so far this season.
Head coach Alex Wood said though the team has plenty of confidence after winning two of its last games, the Rattlers are preparing for a challenge from Hampton.
The Pirates (3-3, 3-1 MEAC) are one of the top teams in the conference, plus they beat the Rattlers 33-0 last season.
Wood said this year both teams are different.
“Whenever you get a chance to win and it seems like your confidence does rise,” Wood said. “Not to the point that you’re overconfident, for sure. I like the guys we’ve got in our lineup. They’re fighters. They really are. Especially the guys up front, they’re battling well.”
