Get Ready to Kick Off the 5th Annual AT&T Nation's Football Classic®
Posted By: Elynor Moss on August 13, 2015 |
The AT&T Nation's Football Classic®, an annual football game featuring historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs), will take place at RFK Stadium in Washington, DC, featuring two storied programs - Hampton and Howard Universities on Friday, September 18 at 7:00 p.m.
"As we celebrate the fifth anniversary of the AT&T Nation's Football Classic, we wanted to refresh the event and bring back a classic rivalry, as we did in 2011 with Morehouse and Howard," says Erik Moses, senior vice president and managing director of Events DC, Sports and Entertainment Division. "The battles between Hampton and Howard in RFK Stadium during the early 90's were instant classics. Giving this type of rivalry a big stage is exactly what we had in mind when conceptualizing this event."
