Today is the Chicago Football Classic at Soldier Field… tailgating starts at 11am, game time 3pm! This year’s Classic pits the Hampton University Pirates vs. Howard University Bison.
This game is yet another match-up between the long-time powerhouse HBCU rivals who’ve been duking it out on the gridiron since 1908! Today’s game also marks a comeback for what’s known as the Real H-U… due to conference changes, their annual contest didn’t happen last year.
For my betting folks, Hampton has won more games overall in this rivalry and have been on a winning streak for the past several years.
In true HBCU fashion, there will be a battle of the bands at halftime… we got a little preview at the Cubs’ HBCU game yesterday (check out my video I caught on Clark Street outside Wrigley on IGTV... link below!!)
May the best team win and may we all celebrate the fall edition of Black People Magic that is the Chicago Football Classic all weekend long! xo
