To prep his school for yet another matchup in the storied Southern Rail Rivalry, Samford president Dr. Andrew Westmoreland put together a professional, professorial video to inform the student body of Saturday’s importance:
Seems like Dr. Westmoreland is ready for some football.
It’s understandable; this is a big one in Birmingham. The Southern Rail Rivalry stretches all the way back to 1906, which is a pretty long-standing rivalry between the schools separated by a two-hour drive. The Mocs have topped the Bulldogs in 28 of the previous 42 meetings, holding a 29-10-3 all-time record.
But with Samford sitting at No. 8 in the country, and Chattanooga having fallen all the way off the wagon at 1-7 this season, it looks like this season could swing things in Samford’s favor.
Thus, you have Dr. Westmoreland seemingly extremely fired up for this Saturday’s matchup. Well played, sir.
