Happy Thanksgiving! The HBCU’s Turkey Day gridiron rivalry between the TUSKEGEE GOLDEN TIGERS and the ALABAMA STATE HORNETS can’t help but be anything but flattering to Tuskegee. The Golden Tigers are, after all, Division 2 while the Hornets are 1AA (FCS if you’re a spineless conformist). In that respect it’s like the rivalry between D2’s ALBANY (GA) STATE GOLDEN RAMS and 1AA’s SAVANNAH STATE TIGERS.
The Hornets come into today’s matchup with a 7-3 record, the Golden Tigers at 9-1. Kickoff in this year’s game is scheduled for 4pm ET. I’ll update the final score when the game is over.
The TUSKEGEE GOLDEN TIGERS win the 89th Turkey Day Classic 27-25.
