Rams & Blazers to renew football rivalry

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

 

College football fans you're welcome. Two of the state's most dominant Division II football programs will once again meet after their last match up turned out to be a classic.

Albany State and Valdosta State have entered a two-year agreement that will pit the two teams together for a home and home beginning in 2014 in Albany and 2015 in Valdosta. 

The Rams and Blazers renewed their rivalry in 2011 after a 4 year drought. The game came down to the final seconds with VSU kicking a field goal late in the 4th to seal the 30-27 win.

VSU athletic director Herb Reinhard says he's excited about the new deal and hopes the two schools can extend the deal for even more years to come.

The Blazers have a 14-1 all time record against the Rams. ASU's only win come in 2004.
