|Turkey Day Classic
Rich with more than 80 years of fierce competition, the oldest football
rivalry among Historically Black Colleges and Universities, the Turkey
Day Classic brings alumni, friends and family to Montgomery each year
to celebrate an exciting gridiron battle between the Alabama State
University Hornets and the Tuskegee University Golden Tigers.
The Turkey Day Classic attracts tens of thousands of fans from across
the nation in a spirit of camaraderie to enjoy homecoming festivities
and celebrate Thanksgiving. Whether they are devout Hornets or
committed Golden Tigers, all enjoy re-newing friendships, gathering
with family members, seeing old classmates and rooting for their team.
When reflecting on the dynamic history of this revered tradition, it is
evident that those who founded and developed these sister institutions
had a clear vision of excellence, both on and off the field. The success
that Alabama State University and Tuskegee University enjoy today,
academically and athletically, is a direct result of the efforts of past and
present alumni, friends and supporters.
