Ok….Week 9 has a few inbtriging matchups…….One for sure will be the surging PVAMU Panthers under Willie Simmons, former OC at Alcorn visiting his former boss, Jay Hopson and Alcorn State for what promises to be a high scoring affair. Simmons just last season paced the Braves offense as QB John Gibbs lead bthem to the SWAC Championship. Simmons has fueled the Panthers offense as QB Trey Green 2015 yards passing and 18tds is tops. RB Johnta Hebert 512 and 3tds paces the ground game. Hebert also leads the recieving corps with 452 yards and 4 scores.

Braves backup QB Lenorris Footman , had a huge game on the Bluff as he rushed for 274 yards and 4tds , could be called to lead once more. RB D.Ragsdale 593 and 5tds paces the ground game though.
