New ASU Stadium is worth the trip to Montgomery for an Alabama State football game all by itself, but the incredible band and dance teams are also must-sees for any college football fan. The Hornets moved into New ASU Stadium in 2012, and since then they have been playing one of the most beautiful palaces in not only the SWAC but all of the FCS. Enjoy the fantastic sight lines and countless amenities at New ASU Stadium while watching the Hornets play.
While New ASU Stadium is quite a treat for fans, it still doesn’t stop the performance of the Mighty Marching Hornets Band. The Mighty Marching Hornets Band steals the show at every Hornets game, and you won’t want to miss their halftime performance, so stay in your seat during the break.
Finally, both the Stingettes and Honeybeez will dazzle you with their routines. Both dance groups put on an incredible show and are both can’t miss parts of any Hornets football game. Stop whatever you’re doing and turn your attention to the field when one of these groups starts to perform.
A trip to Alabama State is a must for any FCS football fan thanks to the gorgeous new stadium and Alabama State’s amazing band and dance teams.

In one loud acclaim.
Hail, hail, hail, hail college so dear

All hail the men who fight on the field
All hail your glory that can’t be repealed;
So hail, hail, hail Alabama!
Hail, hail, hail!

Alabama State Alma Mater
Alabama State, O Mother Dear
Again we come to thee
Our pains and sorrows we forget
When e’er thy face we see
O happy harbor, blessed place
O sweet and pleasant soil
In thee we hope, in thee we trust
For thee we pray and toil.
Thy Sons and Daughters love thy halls
Aglow with truth and light
And every heart beats true to thee
In whom there is no night
O Alma Mater, fair and dear
We proudly hail thy name
Which far and near is known and loved
And crowned with glowing fame.
Thy campus flowers and shady walks
Bring thoughts of Marion Green
Before thy trials in Beulah Vale
Which God from us did screen
But now we stand on College Heights
Content with God’s decree
For all He does is right and good
And makes for liberty.
