TUSKEGEE, Ala. — The Tuskegee University Department of Athletics announced its 2012 football schedule today, which includes a 10-game slate for head coach Willie Slater and the Golden Tigers.

The Golden Tigers, 4-6 in 2011, will play four home games, including a neutral site home date at Legion Field, Birmingham, Ala.  Homecoming 2012 will be celebrated Oct. 20, when the Golden Tigers tangle with the Thorobreds of Kentucky State University.  Seven games make up the required SIAC conference slate.

Two out-of-conference games are booked with Southwestern Athletic Conference (SWAC) opponent Alabama A&M University and Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association (CIAA) opponent Johnson C. Smith University.
