The Albright football team searches for its eighth win of the season on Saturday when the Lions host Juniata in the ECAC Southwest Bowl.

After losing some heartbreaking early games, Albright has rebounded well down the home stretch. The Lions have won three straight games, with two of those victories coming against conference powers Widener and Lebanon Valley.

Despite having a senior-laded team, Albright had a tough time closing and finishing games in the first half of the season. However, the Lions have done a much better job of that lately, which is why the team finds itself in the postseason.

This 29-man senior group knows it had the chance to go to the NCAA tournament this year, but the team is satisfied that it has the chance to play in a postseason game and finish the year on a four-game winning streak.
