Tallahassee, FL -- A new opponent did not stand in the way from another FAMU win in the Atlanta Classic.

"At the half, Coach Taylor gave us a good speech so we knew then we had to fight for it because we don't want to lose anymore," says junior running back Eddie Rocker.

Whatever Coach Taylor said at the half worked. FAMU rallied from sixteen points down in the 3rd quarter to win by five.

"They didn't throw the towel in, we had a great week of practice this last week leading up to the Atlanta Classic. Boy it was so great to come out on top," adds Joe Taylor.

Atlanta native LaVante Page set a school record with five rushing touchdowns, two in the fourth quarter alone to complete the comeback.

"For some reason I was just feeling it," adds Page. "I got hot. I got in my zone and I felt I was not going to be denied. I felt like we had to get a win."

The win evens out the Rattlers' record at (2-2) as they get back to conference play for the rest of the season.

"Each game we took one at a time. Basically we have seven games so we say that one at a time, one times seven equals a championship," adds Anthony Shutt, a senior safety. "That's going to put us in position for playoffs."

It starts with Delaware State when the Rattlers return home on Saturday.
