The Florida A&M Rattlers hope to avoid the disaster that befell both Valdosta State University and Florida State University when they lost on Thursday night (October 11). Wake Forest beat FSU 24-21 while Delta State defeated VSU 35-31.
The Seminoles saw their 4 game win streak snapped as Bobby Bowden lost for the first time to the Wake Forest Demon Deacons in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. The loss dropped the Garnet and Gold from the the top 25 for second time this season.
While Florida State struggled with the Demon Deacons, all was smooth sailing for the Valdosta State Blazers until they gave up 28 consecutive points to the Statesman to end up losing 35-31. It was the first loss of the season to drop VSU's record to 5-1 on the year.
Both teams have seen better days and probably would prefer not seeing another Thursday night game for awhile.
