Atlanta Classic, expanded beer sales at Bragg in FAMU's future

TALLAHASSEE, Florida -- There are plenty of reasons for Florida A&M football fans to get excited for the 2017 season.  The Rattlers get to open their season at home on national television. Tennessee State is back on the schedule in the newly-minted FAMU Tampa Football Classic. FAMU is coming off its best season in years.

If Athletic Director Milton Overton Jr. has his way, 2018 will be even better.  Overton last week said contracts are waiting to be signed to revive the Atlanta Classic for the 2018 season. He’s steadily tried to pick up more classic games for the Rattlers, particularly ones FAMU owns.

A discussion that was supposed to come up during last week’s Board of Trustees meeting, but was tabled, centered on the formation of a nonprofit to make the classics on the Rattlers’ schedule FAMU-owned.  "Now that I've actually got a game, I want to make sure we have a business structure," he said
