  My Prediction :   VSU  28     LIU-P   21  

West Georgia   Vs  # 3  Tuskegee  in  Rd 1 of  D-2 Playoffs  
Abbott Stadium  ,  Tuskegee  Alabama    TBD 

 Willie Slater and Tuskegee Gave up the Turkey Day Classic  so the Golden Tigers could  play for the D-2 National title . Smooth  move becuase the Goldens are in the first round  and  take on the 9-2 Wolves  of  W.Georgia Coach Slater  the top Offense in the SIAC averaging 35 points a game !
