The Florida A&M University (FAMU) football team is anticipating redemption after last week's game in Birmingham, AL against Samford University.

Under the new preeminence with head coach Alex Wood, the Rattlers will proceed to Orangeburg, SC for game three of the season. Last season, the Rattlers were defeated 25- 21 by the South Carolina State Bulldogs.

Freshman defensive back Tyler Woodley is set to play in tomorrow’s game and believes that the Rattlers can win against the Bulldogs.

“Talking to the players and the coaches about this game is really pumping me up,” Woodley said. “We really feel like we have a chance to win and I’m excited to play.”

Despite last week's game, the Rattlers are confident that this will be their first win of the season.

“With this season being coach Wood’s first year, we all have respect for him and we are coming together as one.”

Raevyn Coffee, freshman Occupational Therapy student from Jacksonville, Fla. says that she is more than eager to go to Orangeburg, SC to support her fellow Rattlers. This will be Coffee’s first away game with the Rattlers and she is delighted.

“I’m ready for the boys to bring us back a win,” Coffee said. “We need it, but most importantly, they need it.”

The Rattlers Thursday night game against South Carolina State Bulldogs will air on ESPNU at 7:30 p.m. ET.
