Did you know that the Magic City Classic is the largest historically Black college and university (HBCU) football game in the country? As a Huntsville native who lived near A&M, this game is huge. Not many fans are gonna miss this game.

Every year the two teams gather at Legion Field in Birmingham to duke it out. Then, the winner can earn a spot in the SWAC Championship, a football championship game. That’s BIG news. Also, there are all kinds of fun activities around the game including:

  • The Classic Kickoff
  • Magic City Parade
  • A tailgale party
  • The halftime show (arguably some of the best performances in Alabama)
