SAVANNAH, Georgia -- Goals for a 3-6 team in the season finale?
Savannah State first-year coach Erik Raeburn didn’t have to look hard for reasons to be excited about today’s game with visiting Morgan State.
“Geez, if you’re a senior and you don’t want your career to end on a positive note, if that doesn’t motivate you, there’s nothing I can do for you,” Raeburn said.
“As a team, we have a chance to go undefeated at home for the first time in a long time. If we win, we’d be .500 in the MEAC so we’d avoid having a losing season in the MEAC for the first time ever.

“Winning would carry some momentum into our offseason workouts. It would carry momentum into our recruiting. It’d be a great thing for our program.”
So the seemingly meaningless 1 p.m. tilt at T.A. Wright Stadium — a makeup of an Oct. 8 game postponed because of Hurricane Matthew — comes with program-enhancing implications.
After losing to South Carolina State 32-0 a week ago, the Tigers (3-6, 3-4 MEAC) can’t get to a .500 record for the first time since 1998. But considering SSU hasn’t had more than one win a year during the last six seasons, every chance of victory should come with eager anticipation.
