If Florida A&M Athletic Director Milton Overton Jr. has his way, FAMU’s football team won’t have to play “money games” against FBS opponents.

Overton said he’s hoping to establish FAMU-owned Classic games in Atlanta and Miami. Those games would be against FCS opponents, and would eliminate the need for games against teams like Ohio State, Miami and South Florida.

FAMU was hammered by South Florida 51-3 in the Rattlers’ season opener.

  1. If he pulls this off and FAMU ends up making more money without playing games against I-A teams, the FAMU administration needs to build a Milton Overton statue outside of Bragg.
