The Florida A&M University (FAMU) Rattlers are still seeking their first win of the season as they lose to South Carolina State Bulldogs [36-0] in a Thursday night HBCU matchup on ESPNU.

The Rattlers struggled against the Bulldogs from the beginning of the game when attempting to approach the end zone.

The Rattlers offense improved in the third quarter giving them hope to capitalize. Freshman wide receiver Kevin Troutman led with 62 receiving yards and had one of the most explosive plays of the game for the Rattlers offense.

Sophomore, tight end Desmond Noird also contributed 30 receiving yards, which ranked him second on the stat sheet.

The Rattlers defense held the team together against the Bulldogs but their efforts were not enough to pull off a solid win.

The Rattlers have a total of three losses and will go into their next game at home against Tennessee State trying to put a stop to their losing streak.

Game time is set for Saturday, September 26, at 6 p.m. at Bragg Memorial Stadium.
