FAMU-SOUTHERN FOOTBALL GAME NOW ON 2008 SCHEDULE
Resolution of schedule issues will allow rivals to play October 18 in Baton Rouge
Feb. 18, 2008
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - Florida A&M University, in co-operation with officials from the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference and member schools, announced Monday the resolution of a conflict on their 2008 football schedule which will allow them to play Southern University in Baton Rouge.
The two longtime rivals will play in A.W. Mumford Stadium on the Southern campus on October 18, 2008, a move from the originally contracted date of September 20.
Florida A&M will now play 12 games in 2008 with the addition of the Southern game, with one open date on September 13. FAMU President James Ammons and Athletic Director Bill Hayes worked for the past several weeks with MEAC Commissioner Dennis Thomas and South Carolina State Athletic Director Charlene Johnson to move the Rattlers’ October 18 home game with SCSU to October 4, paving the way for the Southern game to be played.
