This Magic City Classic means so much more than Statewide bragging rights. If Alabama A&M wins, then they continue controlling their own destiny with three games to play. If Alabama State wins they throw a wrench into the Eastern Division standings. The hornets would own the head to head tie breaker and then need A&M to slip up one more time in the final two conference games.
The stakes are high and it's a scary match-up for Anthony Jones and the Bulldogs.
