TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) -- While it's the talk of Wahnish Way most years, football was on the minds of just about every Florida A&M fan in 2018, and it looks to stay that way heading into the new year.

2018 was full of anticipation, excitement and a return to winning ways for the Rattlers, and 2019 will be looked ahead to for different reasons.

In a poll run by the WCTV Sports department, 52% of Rattler fans said it would be Willie Simmons' squad who will have the most successful 2019.

FAMU rode high for a majority of 2018, winning five straight games, including knocking off North Carolina Central in Durham, but fell flat in the final three games, playing their way out of the Celebration Bowl.

2019 has the potential to see sustained success for the Rattlers in year two of Simmons' reign, as well as an opportunity to grow and improve by finishing out the season strong.
