HAMPDEN-SYDENY, VA-The Hampden-Sydney Tigers will remain on the road for one more before the bye week as they will look for their second straight win against the Panthers of Ferrum College on Saturday, September 19. With construction continuing on Ferrum's field, the game will be played at Franklin County High School's Dillon Stadium in Rocky Mount, Virginia.
The two teams have met just once before with the Tigers taking a 38-14 win at Everett Stadium in 2011. Wide receiver Kyle Vance broke the school's single game receiving yard record with 228 on the day.
Saturday will mark the third ODAC opponent for the Panthers, who have dropped their first two games of the year to Emory & Henry (55-7) and Shenandoah (42-27). The game will be the first USA South foe for Hampden-Sydney, who is coming off of a 24-9 victory over Christopher Newport University.
The Tigers will look to make it two straight against Ferrum, before heading into their bye week. Following the week off, it is all ODAC play starting with the Catholic University of America Cardinals on October 3.
