    NORMAL – The Alabama A&M Bulldogs has released their proposed 2013 football schedule.

    Head coach Anthony Jones 12th season will include non-conference contests versus Tuskegee University, South Carolina State and Georgia Tech University.

    Bulldog fans will have the opportunity to see the 103rd edition of football on “The Hill†five times in Louis Crews stadium.

    The Maroon & White football teams’ game with Georgia Tech will be the second year in a row against a Bowl Championship Subdivision opponent.
    Future BCS opponents will include the University of Alabama at Birmingham in 2014 and the University of Cincinnati in 2015.

    "The opportunity to compete against top competition, BCS schools, not only provides more exposure to Alabama A&M University, the football program, and Alabama A&M Athletics, but it’s vital to our growth as a Division I athletics program,†Director of Athletics Bryan Hicks mentioned.

    A&M will travel to Grambling, LA on Aug. 31st for their earliest meeting with the Tigers. They will return home on September 7th for their first home game of 2013 welcoming in-state rival Tuskegee University.

    Two straight trips on the road will see AAMU in Orangeburg, South Carolina on Sept. 14th and Prairie View, Texas on Sept. 21st. They then return home for two dates on Sept. 28th versus Texas Southern then Homecoming versus Mississippi Valley on Oct. 5th.

    The state of Louisiana awaits one more visit from the Bulldogs as they travel to Baton Rouge, LA on Oct. 12th.

    The 72nd annual Magic City Classic falls on Oct. 26th then A&M will venture to the reservation on Nov. 2nd for a date with Alcorn State. The final two home games will be played on Nov. 9th vs. Jackson State and Nov. 16th versus the 2012 SWAC football champions Arkansas-Pine Bluff.

    The final game of the regular season will see the Bulldogs in Atlanta, Georgia for another historic meeting this time versus the Yellow Jackets of Georgia Tech on Nov. 23rd.

    “As always we feel it is a tough schedule as our three non-conference games include opponents who have competed for championship,†said coach Jones. “A schedule like this will give our student-athletes a chance to compete against the best competition in the country.â€

    That's a 6-6 schedule if I've ever seen one.

    Nice schedule.

    Only downer is playing Ga Tech last game. If AAMU wins the SWAC East, you got a decision to make. Go all out against FBS Ga Tech and risk injury before you play the SCG or play it safe.
    Otherwise this is a solid and I mean solid schedule.

    The GA Tech game is going to be a route no matter how hard they play. That offense is too complex for AAMU defense to stop with a week preparation.

    I understand. I was meaning not getting your players all messed up if they make the SCG. LOL. I wouldn't want to play a FBS team that late in the season. They will be hitting on all cylinders by then.

    I like their opponents on the schedule. Just not that order. It would have been better for them if they played Ga Tech earlier in the year. But I am sure that is the only date that Ga Tech had that would work. Just a tough stretch at the end of the year is all.

    We had more players hurt against Tuskegee than we did against Auburn.... football is a contact sport.. you can easily get hurt on any play no matter who the competition is.

    I believe Grambling and AAMU followed S.U.'s lead and developed excellent schedules. If S.U. can just lead those other 7 schools they would be better for it.

    I think we will ignore your actions. We all see where you led Grambling last year. They are now loosers just like you.

    TSU should not have dropped us when we started beating it. Apparently, we have moved on with the occ games. There doesn't appear to be any room for TSU in the next couple of years.

    good 2013 schedule

    I have been waiting for us to play UAB.

    the Cincy game in 2015 is a good move too considering its not that far just up the road

    JSUDMJ2004 JSU enuff said!


    How when they are playing a D2 Tuskegee a team they have dominated, a average SC State and a Ga Tech a team that will dominate them? either way its still better than JSU schedule...

    I think SU has the best schedule so far...

    So you think playing Clark Atlanta is more competitive then TU? :confused: You also think SU will not get dominated by Houston? :confused: Sc St in the last 10 years have been way more competitive than JSU.
