The Hall of Fame awards scholarships to participating schools in support of their golf programs. This is the only official NCAA sanctioned golf tournament for teams from Historically Black Colleges and Universities in the United States.
Black College football season kicks off in September and during this time fans look forward to the HBCU Classics. What are HBCU Classics? Unlike bowl games, these annual football matchups are often played at neutral sites during the regular season. They are more than a game; they are weekend extravaganza accompanied by the battle of the bands, concerts, parades, and parties.
