TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – The Florida A&M University (FAMU) Athletic Department released the start times for the 2014 Rattler Football home games today.

This year’s five-game Bragg Stadium lineup includes three games kicking off at 5 p.m., and two November games at 3 p.m.

The early season home games with Coastal Carolina (Sept. 20), Morgan State (Oct. 4) and Savannah State (Oct. 11) will kickoff at 5 p.m.

The 2014 homecoming game against Norfolk State (Nov. 1), and home finale against South Carolina State (Nov. 8) will kickoff at 3 p.m.

The Rattlers averaged 11,170 in home attendance last season and are looking to improve on those numbers with a reinvigorated fan base, and an improved squad under the leadership of second-year head coach Earl Holmes and new athletic director Kellen Winslow Sr.

FAMU has been in the Top 25 of the NCAA FCS Division over the last five seasons, and the university hopes to exceed its banner campaign numbers from 2011, when the Rattlers ranked No. 8 in the FCS, drawing 74,985 fans in four games, averaging 17,846 per game.

Tickets are now on sale at the FAMU Athletic Ticket Office and can be purchased by payroll deduction for State of Florida workers.
