Alabama State football hosts Arkansas-Pine Bluff in the Turkey Day Classic – Update Alaba

Alabama State football will host Arkansas-Pine Bluff on Thanksgiving Day in the annual Turkey Day Classic, looking for a win to cap off a strong first season under coach Eddie Robinson Jr.

The game will take place on Thursday at 2pm at ASU Stadium in Montgomery and will be streamed on ESPN+.

One of the longest-running HBCU football “classics” in the country, the Turkey Day Classic has been played every year since 1924, with the exception of 2020 due to COVID-19. Alabama State has hosted a game in Montgomery since its inception, with only two games being held elsewhere (1948 and 1982 at Tuskegee).

Traditionally, the game was contested between Alabama State and Tuskegee. Prior to 2012, the Golden Tigers had appeared in all but five of the Turkey Day Classics, but withdrew after the season in favor of competing in the NCAA Division II playoffs.
