Surging FAMU Rattlers face FCS No. 12 North Carolina A&T on Saturday

TALLAHASSEE, Florida -- After an 0-4 start during which the Rattlers were beaten by an average of 35.75 points per game, Florida A&M has won three of its last four games and is above .500 in MEAC play.

Over the last four weeks, FAMU has played some of its best football in recent years. The Rattlers are 3-1 over four games for the first time since 2011 – that season was also the last time the Rattlers finished the regular season with a winning record.

Led by redshirt freshman quarterback Ryan Stanley, the Rattlers have averaged 26 points per game over their last four contests after failing to score more than 17 points in their first four games.

Head coach Alex Wood, speaking during his weekly press conference, said he’s pleased with where the Rattlers are eight weeks into the season. FAMU is coming of a 31-14 homecoming victory over Hampton.

“After that performance on Saturday, I am (pleased),” Wood said. “We can build on that and go forward, absolutely.”
