The Panthers will now face a Wolves squad that is was upset at home and fell from the national rankings this week after sitting at No. 15 a week ago.
Saturday’s game is the seventh all-time meeting between Florida Tech and West Georgia.
UWG owns a 4-2 advantage in the series and the two teams have split the only two meetings at Panther Stadium.
The Wolves won last year’s meeting, 30-21, on their home field as well as the previous contest at Panther Stadium, 20-13, in 2017.
Florida Tech won two in a row in the series, including 45-21 win in 2016 and a 28-26 victory over No. 1 West Georgia in 2015 at Panther Stadium.
The Panthers will look to start a new streak and #BLACKOUT the Wolves as they play in front of their home fans for the first time this season.
