S.C. State football reeling as losses, injuries mount

ORANGEBURG, South Carolina -- There’s a somber but hopeful mood resonating from the South Carolina State football program, now that a young and injury-riddled Bulldogs team has lost three consecutive games in Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference play.

After Saturday’s 13-10 home loss to Norfolk State, S.C. State has just two games left to make this a winning season in conference play. Chances for a winning season record went away at the final whistle of Saturday’s loss to the Spartans.

The Bulldogs can earn a bit of redemption by getting a win this Saturday at home against Savannah State. That would assure them of not having a losing conference record. Then, a win at home on Saturday, Nov. 26 against Bethune-Cookman could give S.C. State a winning conference record.

For an offense that has struggled for consistency in recent losses to Hampton, North Carolina A&T and Norfolk State, things appear a bit more challenging the rest of the season.
