Who We Are

The Morehouse Tuskegee Classic returns to Birmingham on Saturday, Oct. 7 at 7 p.m. CST at the historic Legion Field. The Morehouse College Maroon Tigers took home the trophy last year. Can the Tuskegee University Golden Tigers rebound in the 2023 edition of the Classic? You don’t want to miss this “Battle in Birmingham.’’ This Classic is one of the longest-running NCAA Division II classics in the nation. It began in 1902. 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.
