Every year HBCU fans come together to watch their teams battle at the Atlanta Football Classic held in the Georgia Dome. This is the second year Florida A&M and Southern University have taken the field to claim victory, in the past Tennessee State has played against FAMU.  Many fans wondered what this years game would be like considering the Battle of the Bands wouldn’t be taking place due to the FAMU band being suspended after the hazing death of drum major Robert Champion? During halftime the Southern University Band paid tribute to the FAMU band by spelling out FAMU across the field.

In lieu of FAMU’s band the games organizers setup an amazing halftime show featuring legendary singer Chaka Khan, Doug E. Fresh and rapper Future.  The game also produced many other celebrities stopping by to cheer on their favorite team such as, actor Lance Gross (Tyler Perry’s Meet the Brown), actor Chadwick Boseman (42; Jackie Robinson), Shaka Zulu (DTP) and the 100 Black Men of Atlanta.
