Norfolk State @ Alabama A&M

Current Records: Norfolk State 3-2; Alabama A&M 0-3

What to Know

The Alabama A&M Bulldogs will take on the Norfolk State Spartans at 7 p.m. ET Saturday at Frank L. Forbes Arena. Norfolk State will be strutting in after a victory while Alabama A&M will be stumbling in from a loss.

Alabama A&M suffered a grim 84-64 defeat to the Samford Bulldogs on Thursday.

Meanwhile, even if it wasn't a dominant performance, the Spartans beat the Monmouth Hawks 64-59 on Thursday.

Alabama A&M have to know they'll be fighting an uphill battle given the 11.5-point spread they are up against. Those sticking with them against the spread have guts, to put it politely, as the squad has let down bettors in all their past three games.

Alabama A&M's defeat took them down to 0-3 while Norfolk State's win pulled them up to 3-2. We'll see if Alabama A&M can steal Norfolk State's luck or if Norfolk State records another win instead.
