Get ready for the proud tradition of the Morehouse Tuskegee Classic presented by the City of Birmingham. The showdown between Morehouse College and Tuskegee University will provide students, alumni, fans and the community with a first-class experience while continuing to celebrate the heritage, legacy and pageantry of Historically Black Colleges & Universities.
The Morehouse Tuskegee Classic is one of the longest-running NCAA Division II classics in the nation. It began in 1902 as an entertainment event for the African-American civilian community and U.S. Army soldiers in the Columbus-Fort Benning, GA and Phenix City, AL area. Today, its primary purpose is to help raise funds for scholarships to help young men and women attend college. Having two historical institutions with a long tradition face off on the gridiron in Birmingham, AL, a city known for its love for college football, will be monumental for alumni, sports fans and the entire community.
