Florida A&M Rattlers.jpg

The Florida A&M Rattlers football team represents the Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University located in Tallahassee, Florida. The Rattlers are a member of the NCAA FCS Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference and play their home games at Bragg Memorial Stadium in Tallahassee. The Rattlers are currently coached by Willie Simmons. Florida A&M won the inaugural 1-AA (now FCS) national championship in 1978 when the NCAA divided Division 1 football into 1-A and 1-AA. In 2004, Florida A&M moved up to play as a 1-A independent, but the Rattlers returned to the 1-AA MEAC the following season.


Although a member of the Division II SIAC in 1978, Florida A&M successfully petitioned the NCAA to grant the team 1-AA status for the 1978 season.
