ASU-Alabama A&M still in SWAC contention


Austin Peay (1-8, 0-6) beat Culver-Stockton last week 56-0 for its first victory of the season.

Samford at Elon, 12:30 p.m.

Samford can finish in the top half of the Southern Conference standings with a victory over Elon. A victory would assure the Bulldogs (6-3, 4-3) of finishing no worse than fourth in the nine-team conference.

Samford is coming off a victory over Wofford, which averages 373 rushing yard per game. Now the Bulldogs take on Elon (3-6, 1-5), which leads the league in passing at 300.4 yards per game.

"Wofford threw the ball seven times last week and Elon will probably throw it seven times in the first series or two," Samford coach Pat Sullivan said. "We have to get back into the mode of an up-tempo ballgame."

Stillman vs. Concordia-Selma, 1:30 p.m.

A winning record is on the line for Stillman when the Tigers (5-5, 4-3 SIAC) play Concordia-Selma in their season finale.

Stillman broke a three-game losing streak last week with a 37-12 victory over Clark Atlanta.
