The Albany State University (ASU) football team, under the direction of Head Coach Gabe Giardina, released their 2022 football schedule. The Golden Rams will play a total of 10 football games, playing 4 home games in the ASU Coliseum, and 6 away games including the Fountain City Classic.
“We are excited for our campus and the community to have another opportunity to support Golden Rams Football this year. Football season is a time for celebration and reunion. It is our hope to see the community come out in large numbers to cheer on our student-athletes for what will be an exciting and challenging season,” said ASU Athletics Director Tony Duckworth.
The University hopes to see community members and alumni come out for the 2022 season, beginning with the first home game against the Mississippi College Choctaws Saturday, September 3.
“I am excited to have our 2022 Football schedule released. I greatly appreciate AD Duckworth’s tireless effort to help us secure such an exciting and competitive schedule.
We are excited to renew an old rivalry with FAMU. Playing Gulf South Conference teams help us greatly in getting our team ready for SIAC play and potential seeding in the post-season. From a non-conference standpoint, we try to schedule games that that make it easy for our parents and Ram Nation to travel to so they can support us. Let’s fill the coliseum this season,” said Head Coach Gabe Giardina.
