#7 Spiders face tough road test at #17 Albany


RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) –The Richmond Spiders hit the road Saturday to face a ranked opponent.

The Albany Great Danes are ranked #17 in the country, and just like the Richmond Spiders, they have a victory of an FBS team. The Great Danes took down Buffalo to begin the season. They feature a talented running back and a veteran offensive line.

This is the second time the Spiders have traveled to the state of New York to take on a CAA foe. The previous time did not go very well. Stony Brook blasted Richmond 42-14. Head Coach Danny Rocco and full back James Pavik said they had a learned a thing or two about approaching road trips from that loss.
