Bayou Classic: Holiday Tradition Combining Business with Pleasure (983 hits)

The Bayou Classic is The Powerhouse of Classics

Many fans claim to know about college football, as long as it relates to the Big Ten or Southeastern Conference.

Historically black colleges and universities have put together football events that have been around for decades. Whether or not you went to an HBCU to study is not the point. The point is that this phenomenon is something that everyone should experience at least one time.

In the immortal words of Willie Davis, “I’d just like to say it’s been more than a game, it’s been a way of life.” The legendary Hall of Fame football great may have been reflecting on his career as a champion in professional football during his memorable speech, but the sentiment could easily apply to the fierce rivalry between his Grambling State University Tigers and the Jaguars of Southern University.
