Lincoln University vs Grambling State University!

The first edition of the game will feature the Grambling State University Tigers taking on the Lincoln University Blue Tigers on September 14. Speaking at the announcement, which was attended by almost a dozen Lincoln alumni (the school is in Jefferson City), Mayor Sly James said Classic further cements the city's reputation as a sports town and "a city with an open heart."

The night before the game, the schools' famous marching bands will perform in town. Grambling head coach Doug Williams said the bands were an integral part of experiencing historically black colleges playing football. "We treat the band like the American Express card. We don't leave home without it," he said.
