MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — The Alabama State University's marching band is taking its talents to the NFL.

The Mighty Marching Hornets will be playing during halftime of the Atlanta Falcons vs. Los Angeles Rams game Oct. 20.

WSFA-TV reports Band Director Dr. James Oliver says an NFL entertainment scout contacted him, saying they were impressed with the band, including the musicians' talent and the choreography executed on the field.

He says the performance will be a first for many in the band who have never seen an NFL game in person.
