The State Farm Bayou Classic is more than just a football game; with its colorful and glorified history, the State Farm Bayou Classic is a unique family fellowship that exists within a football game. The State Farm Bayou Classic has become the greatest and most distinguishable sporting event in all of Black America. Everyone loves a grudge match. And that's what football fans can expect at the 36th Bayou Classic sponsored by State Farm Insurance Companies. Every year, the game is a sell-out, attracting more than 70,000 fans. It'll be another terrific game this year as the Grambling State University Tigers and Southern University Jaguars football teams line up on the field to battle it out! The gridiron match-up between Grambling State University and Southern University, two great Southwestern Athletic Conference (SWAC) rivals, represents the best that collegiate sports have to offer: teamwork, tradition, passion and fierce competition.

Guests should also see the Nerjyzed Entertainment Battle of the Bands & Greek Show at 7 p.m. on Nov. 27. The Bayou Classic Football Game is televised live on NBC Sports Nov. 28th.
