Three projections for FAMU football in 2016

TALLAHASSEE, Florida -- The Rattlers began practice on Thursday, and head coach Alex Wood said he’s going to take his time addressing the issues that plagued the team last season. FAMU finished the year 1-10, with the team’s lone victory coming against Del. State on homecoming. Here are three predictions for the Rattlers heading into the 2016 football season:

1. FAMU will win four games this year.

Let’s get bold to start these predictions off. The Rattlers don’t have an easy schedule – even if they did, the team won one game last season – but there are some favorable match-ups. Those match-ups could be enough for the Rattlers to quadruple their win total from 2015.

The 5th Quarter Classic is against Tuskegee. Yes, it renews an old rivalry, but Tuskegee is a Division II program. Plus, FAMU will not lose to Savannah State in back-to-back years, and this year the Rattlers get the Tigers in Bragg.
