The Rams and the Tigers --- who are meeting for the 61st time in their long history -- will play in the Macon classic for the first time in six seasons after rekindling their rivalry a season ago in Waycross in the "Rumble in the Swamp." ASU won that game, 28-14, en route to an 11-1 season, SIAC Championship and SBN National College Championship. The teams played in the classic from 1999 until 2004, and Savannah State, which is a member of the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference, is the only Division I opponent on the 2011 schedule for the Rams, who open the season ranked in the Top 10 in two different polls: tied for No. 9 in AFCA Division II Coaches' Poll, and No. 10 in the d2football.com Preseason Top 25.

RAMS RALLY SET FOR WEDNESDAY: The Albany State University Student-Athlete Advisory Committee invites all Golden Rams fans to cheer in the 2011 fall sport seasons for football, cross country and volleyball by attending a Ram Rally. The event will be today from 6:30 p.m. until 8:30 p.m. at the ASU Pedestrian Mall.

"We want to cheer all of our teams to victory during their seasons. We don't want to just cheer on the football team, but also cross country and volleyball teams in their quests for SIAC championships and postseason participation," said Dr. Richard H. Williams, interim director of athletics.

The event is free and open to the public. Free food and music will be provided.
