Troy running back B.J. Smith gained 71 yards on 12 carries including a touchdown in the Trojans' 59-7 victory over Florida A&M in 2018.

TROY — Troy added another piece to its future football schedule with the addition of Florida A&M to open the 2024 season (Aug. 31) at The Vet, both schools announced Friday. It is Troy’s third non-conference game on the books for the 2024 campaign.

This will be the seventh all-time meeting between Troy and Florida A&M with the Trojans holding a 4-2 advantage in the series. Troy has won both meetings since it moved to the FBS ranks, including a 59-7 win in 2018.

The schools met three times over a four-year period in the late 1990s with all three meetings occurring in the FCS Playoffs. The series first meeting came during the 1984 season at the Gator Bowl in Jacksonville, Fla.

Florida A&M joins Southern Miss to fill out Troy’s home non-conference slate in 2024. The Trojans are scheduled to travel to Memphis that year in addition to another yet to be scheduled opponent.

Season ticket packages for the 2020 season start as low as $60 for general admission seating and $100 for reserved seats for Troy’s six home games at The Vet. Fans who purchase or renew by June 1 will receive a limited edition T-Roy Bobble Head; tickets can be purchased or renewed by calling 877-878-WINS or by visiting TroyTrojans.com/tickets.

The Trojans enter year two under head coach Chip Lindsey with the second most wins by an FBS program in the state of Alabama over the last four seasons and the sixth most among schools in the Group of Five conferences.

Troy returns a pair of All-Americans on defense in junior linebacker Carlton Martial and sophomore safety Dell Pettus, while the offense returns a slew of playmakers from a unit that was one of the best in the country a season ago. The Trojans featured a top-25 scoring offense (33.8 points per game) and top-18 overall offense (456.3 yards per game).
