TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) -- Florida A&M University has announced Saturday's game against Savannah State has been moved to a 6 p.m. ET start time.

The Rattlers and Tigers were originally slated for a 4 p.m. kickoff from Bragg Memorial Stadium.

FAMU begins MEAC play against SSU with a 1-2 record after dropping a two-point game to Jackson State this past weekend.

The Rattlers defeated the Tigers in last year's meeting in Savannah, 20-14.

A win on Saturday would make three straight victories for FAMU over SSU.

The program will be celebrating the 20th anniversary of the 1998 Black College National Championship.

Savannah State enters this weekend's tilt with an 0-2 record. They were scheduled to take on Howard last weekend, but it was postponed due to Hurricane Florence.
