AT & TWASHINGTON, D.C. – When Morehouse College and Howard University meet in the 2014 AT&T Nation’s Football Classic® on Saturday, Sept. 13 at RFK Stadium, it will mark the end of a four-year run for both institutions. The inaugural Classic reignited the football rivalry between the schools in 2011, and launched a  new sports tradition in the nation’s capital.
“Building the AT&T Nation’s Football Classic has been a labor of love, and we’ve been honored to have great partners like Howard and Morehouse help us develop and showcase the event as a four-day experience,” said Erik A. Moses, managing director of Events DC’s Sports and Entertainment Division.
“We’ve made a concerted effort to offer a variety of events throughout the weekend because from the onset, our goal was to complement the game with activities that highlighted education, networking and entertainment,” added Moses. “We’re excited for the Classic’s future, and the competition to come. Stay tuned for updates in early 2015 on the next matchup.”
The Morehouse and Howard football rivalry began in 1923, and holds a unique place in the Black college football landscape. Fueled by fierce school pride and prestigious academic reputations, students and alumni from both schools debate endlessly about who’s best in academics, alumni accomplishments, business, fashion and tailgating traditions.
