The Bethune-Cookman Wildcats will take on the conference leading and 25th ranked Norfolk State Spartans at Dick Price Stadium in Norfolk, Va.  The game will broadcast live on ESPNU. 

The Wildcats hold a 1-2 record in the MEAC and are hoping to pull above .500 tonight against the Spartans. Bethune-Cookman is coming off a big win and an offensive explosion against Fort Valley State. Wildcat running back Isidore Jackson racked up 150 of the 418 yards the team had on the ground and 648 yards of total offense.

The Norfolk State Spartans currently boast a 6-1 overall record and are undefeated in the conference heading into this matchup. NSU's only loss came against 11th ranked West Virginia in week two. Norfolk State is coming off a hard fought 34-24 win against Hampton in the Battle of the Bay. The Spartans are currently ranked 25th in the NCAA FCS rankings with their best start since 2007.
