Tuskegee and Morehouse set for 76th Classic

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Two sets of Tigers are ready to hit the field this weekend, with bragging rights at stake. The Tuskegee Golden Tigers and Morehouse Maroon Tigers are ready to renew their rivalry at the 76th Tuskegee-Morehouse Classic at McClung Memorial Stadium.

Tuskegee (1-3, 1-1 SIAC) has struggled this season, a young team with several freshmen and sophomores seeing significant playing time. Morehouse (4-1, 2-0 SIAC) on the other hand is a veteran squad that has been racking up the wins.

The one place they haven't racked up the wins is against their arch-rival. Tuskegee is carrying a seven-game winning streak into Saturday's game, with 13 wins in the last 15 meetings between the two teams.

Kickoff is set for 2 p.m. ET on Saturday.
