S.C. State Bulldogs set to tangle with Savannah State Tigers

ORANGEBURG, South Carolina -- South Carolina State head football coach Buddy Pough isn’t trying to sugarcoat where his Bulldogs' program stands with two games left to play this season.

At 3-6 overall, 3-3 in Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference play, getting a win this Saturday at home in a 1:30 p.m. conference game against Savannah State would go a long way toward restoring some confidence in the team.

With the visiting Tigers also carrying a 3-3 conference record, Pough sees this as a game that will get one team over the hump and give them a reprieve from possibly facing a losing conference record heading into the offseason.

Pough doesn’t see the Tigers as one of the better Savannah State teams in recent years.

“It’s the best Savannah State team I’ve seen, ever,” Pough said this week. “I didn’t see the Bill Davis (coached) Savannah State teams, back when they had Shannon Sharpe there.

“But, I saw them play that year, because I was pretty close to Bill. I remember them being pretty good then. But, since then, I don’t recall there being a team showing this kind of improvement this quickly.
