Tuskegee Out of 2013 Turkey Day Classic


By Alabama News Network

Tuskegee University's athletics department has announced its football team will not play in the annual Turkey Day Classic against Alabama State University next season.


Tuskegee University officials Tuesday announced that its final game of the season will be Nov. 9.


Alabama State is finalizing its 2013 schedule and the teams have missed playing each other in the Turkey Day Classic in 1986, 1987, 1991 and 1992 because of contract disputes.


Tuskegee officials say the move will allow the team more freedom to play further into the postseason by playing in the NCAA Division II playoffs if they're eligible.
