Rivalries & Top Games to Attend

Magic City Classic

Rival Team: Alabama Crimson Tide and Alabama A&M Bulldogs

The annual Magic City Classic takes place each year between the two largest historically black universities in Alabama, Alabama A&M, and Alabama State. The matchup dates back to 1924, and it is typically the highest attended FCS game of the season. Head on up to Birmingham for the Magic City Classic between Alabama A&M and Alabama State.

Turkey Day Classic

Rival Team: Tuskegee Golden Tigers

Alabama State and Tuskegee play each year in the Turkey Day Classic. The rivalry began in 1924, and it has been played every year since then. The Turkey Day Classic also serves as Alabama State’s homecoming game, meaning there isn’t a better time to attend a Hornets game at New ASU Stadium than the Turkey Day Classic.
