SSU looks to continue home-field edge vs. Norfolk State

SAVANNAH, Georgia --  Savannah State will be looking forward to playing in T.A. Wright Stadium today. Maybe Norfolk State is, too.

The Tigers have clawed their way to two home victories in two tries this season. The Spartans have never lost in Savannah in seven previous contests.

So something has to give when the two schools meet here at 5 p.m.

“The most important thing is to protect your house,” Tigers defensive end Marquis Smith said. “You never want someone to come in and take something from you. You can’t allow that. That’s not what men allow.”

No doubt SSU is feeling a little frisky these days after tripping Howard 31-27 a week ago. Coming into the season, the Tigers had a total of five wins in six years. Now, they not only have a modest two-game winning streak at T.A. Wright Stadium, but they’ve won two Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference games in a season for the first time since joining the league in 2011.
