Ram Ramblings: WSSU football schedule has balance for 2016

WINSTON-SALEM, North Carolina -- It’s that time of year when sports are colliding in a big way at WSSU.

I was able to check out the baseball team practicing indoors in preparation for its Feb. 5 opener at BB&T Ballpark against Millersville. I was also keeping tabs on both the women’s and men’s basketball teams at the Gaines Center. They were taking on Fayetteville State.

I was also able to get a hold of the WSSU football schedule for 2016, and it’s a good one.

The Rams, the defending CIAA champions who went 6-5, will open at home on Sept. 3 against UNC Pembroke before traveling down Route 52 to play Catawba on Sept. 10. The Rams will then have consecutive home games against Virginia Union and Virginia State.

The Rams will have a balanced schedule with five home games and five away games. This season will also mark the first time the Rams will travel to take on Lincoln (Pa.) since they rejoined the CIAA in 2010.
