Tennessee State University Athletic Director Teresa Phillips has released the tentative 2011 football schedule with the Atlanta Classic against perennial opponent,  Florida A&M University.

The Atlanta Classic is sponsored by the 100 Black Men of Atlanta and they decided to bring in another opponent to face Florida A&M, ‘ said Phillips. “We are in active negotiations to schedule an FBS or prominent FCS team to replace that game this year.” She concluded saying, “We expect to complete our schedule by the end of the month.”

The Tigers and Rattlers have played each other for twenty-eight consecutive years with FAMU holding a 26-25-1 record in the all-time series. TSU beat FAMU 29-18 last year in Atlanta in front of a crowd of 54,202.
