Florida A&M to face competitive schedule
(Stats Perform) - Florida A&M will seek to build off a banner season during its competitive, 11-game schedule this year.
The Rattlers finished last season 9-2 and a MEAC-best 7-1, although it was ineligible for the conference title due to NCAA Academic Progress Rate sanctions.
In seeking a third straight winning season under coach Willie Simmons, the Rattlers will open and close the regular season by playing "classics" inside the state - the Orange Blossom Classic against Albany State on Sept. 6 in Miami and the Florida Classic against rival Bethune-Cookman on Nov. 21 in Orlando.
Florida A&M will travel to UCF for the second consecutive year, having fallen to the FBS program 62-0 to open last season.
