HAMPDEN-SYDNEY, VA-Hampden-Sydney will take to the road this Saturday to face Christopher Newport for the team's second meeting and first at POMOCO Field in Newport News. Both teams are picked to win their respective conferences and opened up their seasons with victories. The Tigers started slow but rolled to a 42-12 win over Averett while the Captains took a 17-10 road decision over #16 Salisbury.
Last season, the two teams met for the first time at Everett Stadium with Hampden-Sydney scoring early and often in a 42-20 win. Christopher Newport will surely be more prepared this time around for the Tigers' uptempo aerial assault.
With both teams receiving votes for the Top 25, the winner of Saturday's game will make a strong case to crack into the rankings.
