MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - Nearly a decade has passed since the Alabama State Hornets and Tuskegee University Golden Tigers have met up for a Thanksgiving Day showdown. That’s about to change.

ASU’s 2021 football schedule will feature the renewal of a rivalry at the Turkey Day Classic against the Golden Tigers.
The Hornets and Golden Tigers will meet on Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 25, inside ASU Stadium. It will be the 89th meeting between the two schools.

The last time the two teams faced each other in the Turkey Day Classic was in 2012. The Hornets and Golden Tigers last played each other outside of the classic in Sept. 2019.
