Washington, DC– In front of a crowd of 18,409 people, the Howard University Bison (1-1) defeated the Morehouse College Tigers (1-1) in the first inaugural AT&T Nation's Football Classic Sat., Sept.10, at RFK Stadium.
AT&T donated $10,000 to both Howard and Morehouse to support students' education.
As the colors blue, white and maroon took their seats to cool off from the heat and long lines, live performances by well-known actor and hip-hop legend Marcel "Biz Markie" Hall and others entertained the crowd to "kick-off" a great game.
"This game has so much history and tradition behind it," said first-year Howard head coach Gary "Flea" Harrell.
D.C. native and neo-soul recording artist, Raheem Devaughn, sung the National Anthem and national recording artist, Alison Carney, followed with the African-American national anthem.
