FAMU Rattlers chasing four-game home attendance record

TALLAHASSEE, Florida -- Florida A&M’s football team is looking to set several marks as the season winds down.

With two games left, the Rattlers have the opportunity to finish 5-6 overall, which would be the best season for FAMU since 2011. The Rattlers could also finish at .500 in MEAC play for the first time since 2012 with just one win in their final two games.

Still, there’s an all-time mark the Rattlers (3-6, 3-3 MEAC) are hoping to set Saturday against Morgan State, though they’ll need some help from their fans.

FAMU has a chance to break the all-time, four-game season attendance record for Bragg Memorial Stadium. Through three home games this season, including homecoming, 61,960 fans have come to see the Rattlers play in Bragg.

If 20,428 fans come out to Saturday’s game, the Rattlers will break the previous record set in 1996. So far, the Rattlers have averaged 20,653 fans per game at Bragg.
