The Florida A&M Rattlers will play its first game on the newly named Ken Riley Field on Sunday night against West Florida.
FAMU (1-1) finally plays at Bragg Memorial Stadium after opening the 2023 football season with games in Miami Gardens and Tampa. After beating SWAC East rival Jackson State in the opener, the Rattlers came up short in a 38-24 loss to USF last week. Quarterback Jeremy Moussa threw for 374 yards and a touchdown but also tossed three interceptions, and despite 11 tackles and two sacks from Isaiah Major, the defense couldn’t hold back the Bulls.
The Argos (2-0) are coming off back-to-back 35-3 wins over Kentucky Wesleyan and McKendree. UWF, ranked No. 4 in NCAA Division II, made the national semifinals last season. Senior quarterback Peewee Jarrett has complete 80% of his passes this season for 559 yards and five TDs.
