The Alabama State football team held a light workout session Friday at Hornet Stadium in preparation for the 89thTurkey Day Classic against Tuskegee. 

The Hornets (7-3) and the Golden Tigers (9-1) will kick off on next Thursday, Nov. 22 just after 3 p.m. live on WVAS 90.7 FM and on ESPNU TV.

"Practice today was great," head coach Reggie Barlow said. "We had good focus, good energy, and we were able to get another day in to work on the game plan that we needed to be focused in on Tuskegee. They are a powerful, strong team so all the work we can get in will help."  

The Golden Tigers have rushed for 2300 yards as a team, while Derrick Washington has accounted for over 1400 yards himself. 

"The running back they have is really good," said Barlow. "He's very powerful running back. He's had a lot of experience this season, rushing for over 1300 yards, so we know it's going to be a challenge. It's going to be important that we have gap integrity and the guys have to make sure that they come to balance and tackle." 

Last week defensively, ASU held Southern to a total of 94 yards on the ground in the running game.  

"Defensively against Southern, we gave up some stuff, but when we had the opportunity to make plays like stopping them on the 2-point conversion, the guys stepped up," Barlow said. "The game before that against Prairie View, they stepped up, and against (Alabama) A&M the guys held their own."
