PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — In local college football on Saturday, neighboring schools West Chester and Cheyney will match up at West Chester’s John A. Farrell Stadium.

Cheyney has struggled for several years, but Golden Rams head coach Bill Zwaan says the Wolves have gotten much better:

“They’ve been able to keep guys in the program, so now they have older and experienced kids playing for them.  (Cheyney head coach) Jeff Braxton has done a really good job over there. He has his kids ready to play every single week.”

Braxton talks about the keys for his team on Saturday:

“I think if we can reduce the turnovers and play mistake-free football and our special teams can do a better job tackling, I think it will give us a chance to have a successful day on Saturday.”
