Randy’s Free Pick
The Alabama A&M Bulldogs aren't world beaters, but they're the much better side than Florida A&M, a team that's losing on the year by an average of 12 points. The Alabama A&M Bulldogs are playing their best ball of the season over the last week or so, and that should continue here against a bad opponent. It's the chalk or pass for me.
