BIRMINGHAM, AL (WSFA) -

The Alabama State Hornets reached an agreement with the Most Worshipful Prince Hall Grand Lodge of Alabama to establish the Prince Hall Masons Americanism Football Classic. The two sides signed the agreement in Birmingham on Tuesday.

The two-year agreement establishes a third "Classic" on Alabama State's football schedule along with the Turkey Day Classic and the State Farm Magic City Classic.

"We are certainly excited to establish a third classic for Alabama State University," said Dr. Gwendolyn Boyd, President of Alabama State. "We are excited that when you (the Most Worshipful Prince Hall Grand Lodge of Alabama) did reach out for a partner, not only in football, but in enhancing the lives of our young people, and especially our young men, you chose Alabama State. It is important that we always acknowledge that our students are student athletes, they are students first. We want them to be champions in the classroom as well as champions on the field."

As part of the two-year deal, the Hornets will take on Texas Southern on September 27 at 5 p.m. at Hornet Stadium.

The following season, the Hornets will then play host to Grambling State on September 19, 2015.
