Ram Ramblings: WSSU in CIAA title game but opponent is still unknown

WINSTON-SALEM, North Carolina -- When the CIAA and its television partner were deciding on which games to broadcast they picked Saturday’s WSSU-Fayetteville State game in Fayetteville. It was a good call because the last three years the winner of that game, which has been WSSU each time, won the Southern Division.

Saturday’s game at 2 p.m. is scheduled for ASPIRE Network but the winner of the game won’t decide the division title.

The Rams, thanks to their 6-0 record in the conference, secured the division title with a win at Shaw on Saturday. The Broncos are 4-2 in the division so even if the Broncos win on Saturday the Rams would own the better conference record.

So while the Rams are in the CIAA championship game for the sixth straight year the division winner from the North is still up in the air. The CIAA championship game is scheduled for Nov. 12 in Salem, Va. and WSSU will be there but its opponent is unknown.
