Kevin Porter has a clear goal for his team: take care of the ball.
Fort Valley State had five turnovers last week in a loss to Miles. The Wildcats (0-2) host Benedict, which is 2-1, on Saturday.
“You can’t turn the ball over five times and expect to win games,” Porter said. “Even if you force three turnovers, when you turn it over five times, you’re minus-two in turnover margin. We have to value the ball.”
Saturday’s game marks the 22nd meeting between Fort Valley State and Benedict with the Wildcats holding a 16-5 advantage. Benedict won 28-14 last year.
