It's the biggest game on the Rattlers schedule.
Joe Taylor says,
"People plan their vacation around this game."
The 31st Florida Classic between FAMU and the Wildcats of Bethune-Cookman.
FAMU freshman quarterback Austin Trainor adds,
"We're treating it like a regular game though, you have to prepare the same but we're definitely going to come out with more hype and energy because this is what we've wanted all year and it's finally here."
It hosts the battle for the MEAC Championship. The Wildcats are currently the top team in the conference at (7-0), but a win by the Rattlers would create a tie in the standings.
Joe Taylor adds,
"One of the biggest classics that are put on each year and certainly this year, I'm sure the sponsors had no idea that it would come down to a championship game."
FAMU senior cornerback Curtis Holcomb adds,
"It's the classic, everyone is trying to get it over-hyped but we're coming into this game as calm and cool, trying to go into this game just as another conference game. We have to win this game if we want to win the MEAC and that's how we're approaching it."
FAMU senior cornerback Qier Hall adds,
"We're coming in very focused. It's championship week and we all have not won a ring here at FAMU, we haven't won anything so I'm just hoping that we come out very focused and come out here and execute."
If you're a fan off offense you'll be sure to love this one, the Rattlers have scored 100 points in the last two meetings, both FAMU wins.
