After a whirlwind 48 hours, Tuskegee finally has a 10th opponent. Virginia State head coach Reggie Barlow told The Montgomery Advertiser his team will play at Tuskegee on Saturday.
Tuskegee (8-1) was originally slated to play Albany State, who backed out after a verbal agreement. Virginia State (8-2) has stepped in as both teams look to make a case for the Division II playoffs.
VSU finished 8-2 and was runner up in the CIAA North to Bowie State.

This is a win-win for both of these great HBCU'S. NCAA DII should reward the winner with a playoff birth.
