Alabama A&M’s Director of Athletics, Dr. Paul A. Bryant, said the university is bringing back the men’s cross country team starting this fall. The team competed in 1994.

“Adding men’s cross country to our athletics program at Alabama A&M is a significant step forward for our institution and our student-athletes,” Bryant said in a written statement. “This new program not only enhances our athletics department but also provides our students with additional opportunities to excel both on and off the field. It embodies our commitment to creating a holistic environment where students can achieve academic success and athletic excellence. We are excited about the potential this program brings and look forward to seeing our student-athletes thrive in this new arena.”
The men’s cross country team will compete in NCAA‘s Division I. With the program returning this upcoming season, the Department of Athletics will have teams in 17 NCAA Division I varsity sports.

The last televised game will air on the ESPN Family of Networks, a Thursday night game against Grambling State on Nov. 14 at home.
