Just like the Noles, the Rattlers are coming off a big win, and it won't be any easier from here on out.
The Orange and Green improved to 2 and 4 in the MEAC with their victory over the winless North Carolina A and T, and now they visit the conference defending champion, Hampton College.
The good news is that the Pirates don't seem to be what they once were, they already have 3 losses on the season.
Win or lose, the good news for the Rattlers is the development of their young talent.
"We're playing a lot of young guys right now. That will pay dividends down the road. Eddie is playing pretty well. The offensive line for how banged up they are is doing a pretty good job," says FAMU offensive coordinator Bob Cole.
