Alabama A&M opens SWAC play Saturday at Mississippi Valley State

HUNTSVILLE, Alabama -- The Bulldogs have put last week's loss to Middle Tennessee State behind and are focused on Mississippi Valley State in the Southwestern Athletic Conference opener for both teams.

They visit the Delta Devils with a 4 p.m. kickoff Saturday.

"It's kind of a luxury that we can't lick our wounds," Head Coach James Spady said. "We definitely want to erase last week's game."

The Bulldogs were stunned last year as MVSU rallied for a 27-24 overtime win at Louis Crews Stadium. It was the Delta Devils' first win of the season and the only home loss for A&M.

This game is important for the Bulldogs in their quest to reach the SWAC championship game as they travel to Itta Bena, Miss.

"This is a conference game and it's the first step in reaching our goal," Spady said. "It's not about our opponent; it's about A&M trying to get better.
