The confines of home have been anything but friendly to the Bakersfield College football team this fall.

After putting together an 0-4 record at Memorial Stadium, a two-week road stretch may be just what the Renegades need to spring some life into what has been a difficult season.

BC, which is 2-1 on the road, has outscored Santa Monica and Orange Coast 71-9 in its last two away contests. The Renegades look to continue their road success with a visit to East Los Angeles on Saturday night.

Like the Renegades, the Huskies enter the matchup 2-5 overall with an 0-2 mark in SCFA North play.

While BC has suffered a pair of one-possession losses in conference play, East LA has lost in decisive fashion twice, being outscored 91-19. This included a 58-10 loss to College of the Canyons last Saturday, in which the Huskies surrendered 547 yards of offense.

It was the Renegades putting up 58 points on East LA a season ago, outscoring them 34-0 in the first 16:05 of the second half. The game, a 58-17 BC win, didn't make it to the finish, as a string of ugly fights resulted in it being called with 13:55 to play.

Players from both teams were suspended as a result of the melee.

Saturday's game kicks off at 6 p.m.
