COLUMBUS, Ga. (WRBL) — The Fountain City Classic is back in the Chattahoochee Valley for its 33rd year.

Every year, the Albany State University Golden Rams take on the Fort Valley State University Wildcats. So far, ASU holds the lead at 45-39-4.

The Fountain City Classic isn’t just football — it’s a 501 non-profit organization that provides scholarship funds to both ASU and FVSU. Specifically, to Columbus students attending either university.
