2015 HBCU Classics Football Schedule

2015-HBCU-Classics-Football-Schedule

Some of these dates have already passed, but let’s do our BEST to support our HBCU’s! We need ALL OF YOU to spend some money supporting our HBCU’s by attending one or more of the HBCU Football Classics in the United States of America. We owe the support to ourselves because these schools educate our daughters and sons. It’s that simple!

Football season is here! September kicks off the 2015 HBCU classics football schedule, with four match-ups being played on Labor Day weekend. These games include the MEAC/SWAC Challenge in Orlando, FL where Arkansas-Pine Bluff University will take on South Carolina State University. Orlando is also the destination for the Tom Joyner Family Reunion, which will be going on at the same time.

Late in the fall, you can look forward to fan favorites such the Magic City Classic in Birmingham, AL, and the Bayou Classic in New Orleans, LA. If this year’s HBCU Classic lineup was not exciting enough, the inaugural Celebration Bowl debuts on Dec. 19. The game will be played at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta, and televised live on ABC. This bowl game is a postseason match-up between the conference champion from the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference and the Southwestern Athletic Conference champion.
