Hampton vs. Howard: More Than Just a Game – Historic Photos

In just a few short hours two of our nation’s most historic HBCUs face off in the AT&T Nation’s Football Classic to determine who in fact is the real HU. Hampton University and Howard University were founded shortly after the Civil War and for well over a century continues to set a standard in educating young people all over the world.

The Nation’s Classic will showcase the talents of these two institutions both on and off the field. Be sure to catch the Presidential Symposium: An Exploration of Community and Police Relations, “The Game Before the Game: Student Debate Hampton vs. Howard” and the HBCU College and Career Fair with the Congressional Black College Foundation.

While you are enjoying the many festivities, be sure to look at some amazing photos of Hampton and Howard’s football team over the years!
