Limited football tickets available for Cleveland Classic


The Tuskegee University Department of Athletics announced today that a limited number of tickets are now available for the Cleveland Classic that will feature the defending SIAC Champion Tuskegee Golden Tigers, and the defending CIAA and Black College Football National Champion Winston Salem State University Rams. The Rams are the 2013 NCAA Division II National Runners-Up in football, while the Golden Tigers won their 29th overall SIAC Championship (26th outright) last season as the SIAC prepares to celebrate its’ centennial anniversary this upcoming year.

The Cleveland Classic will be the third game on Tuskegee’s 2013 football schedule, and will be played Sept. 21, 2013 at FirstEnergy Stadium, home of the NFL’s Cleveland Browns. Tickets are currently available at two different price levels. A $15 ticket will get you into the contest for general admission, while reserved seats are $40, and will allow you to sit in the lower bowl of the stadium inside both ends of the field’s 30-yard line. Seats are expected to go quick, so be sure to place your order immediately, so that you may not miss the action of this historic contest.

Last year, Tuskegee finished with an overall record of 10-2, which featured a ten-game winning streak after losing the opening game of the season during Labor Day Kickoff Weekend in Birmingham, Ala. against the Bulldogs of Alabama A&M University by a score of 7-6. During the ten-game winning streak, which culminated in the crowning of the 2013 SIAC Championship, Tuskegee defeated its competition by an average of 18.4 points per game. Winston-Salem State University finished the 2012 season with an overall record of 14-1, going undefeated before losing in the NCAA Division II National Championship Game to Valdosta State University. During this winning streak, the Rams defeated their opposition by an average margin of 26.4 points per game.

Tickets are available to the game by calling the Tuskegee University ticket office at either (334) 727-8594 or (334) 724-4385. The finalized 2013 Tuskegee University football schedule was made available online earlier this week. Season ticket sales for Tuskegee University home football games at Abbott Stadium are set to get underway next week.
