Script error The Fountain City Classic is an annual American football game featuring Fort Valley State University and Albany State University, two of Georgia's historically black universities. The game is played at A. J. McClung Memorial Stadium in Columbus, Georgia.


Early historyEdit

The rivalry began in 1945, although 2014 is just the 25th meeting of the two teams since it became officially known as the Fountain City Classic in 1990. FVSU leads the series 33–31–3.[1]

The first meeting of the two schools was in 1945, when FVSU beat ASU, 27–21. The two schools did not play each other in 1946 and 1947. While the rivalry between the two teams spans more than half a century, FCC officials moved the game to Columbus in 1990 to attract more corporate support.
