Head coach Connell Maynors’ Rams showed the Buffalo of West Texas A&M what it means to be RAM Tuff with a 41 to 18 win in the Semi-Finals of the D-2 National Play-offs . Winston Salem State will now represent not only the CIAA; but all HBCUs as the 14-0 Red and Black face Valdosta State in the Championship game in Florence Alabama this Saturday .
