Home at last: SCSU Bulldogs back after five-game away stretch

ORANGEBURG, South Carolina -- It can’t be considered the Fab Five or even necessarily the Fun Five, but S.C. State football has finally completed what ended up being a five-game road odyssey to start the 2016 season.

No need to go back and talk about the three-game stretch at Central Florida, Louisiana Tech and Clemson. File those three losses to more robust FBS competition under the heading Research and Development.

With as many as 17 first-year players (both true freshmen and redshirt freshmen) among the two-deep depth chart for the Bulldogs (now 2-3), those were games for players to learn their positions and see how fast and hard the college game can be played.

In the past two games, S.C. State has not only come back to play Football Championship Series competition but has won two Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference games on the road. Regardless of the season and personnel, that’s an accomplishment.
