The Bayou Classic Wednesday, May 29, 2013, announced their official
schedule of events for the upcoming series of events beginning November
26, 2013. Each year, this weekend of events brings together family,
friends and alumni of Grambling State University and Southern University
to see one of America's greatest college sports rivalries and celebrate
football, family, and the traditions surrounding Historically Black
Colleges and Universities.
This year's schedule includes the fan
favorite Battle of the Bands and Greek Show, occurring November 23, as
well as a couple of new events.
"This is a big year -- the big
4-0 -- and we are ready to celebrate with new events and bigger events
that celebrate what the Bayou Classic has brought our community for over
40 years," said Dottie Belletto, president of New Orleans Convention
Company, Incorporated (NOCCI), the management firm of the 40th Annual
Bayou Classic. "Weâ€™ve put together our schedule of events focused on
continuing our work to make Bayou Classic fan and family friendly, but
have developed new programming that helps nourish our HBCU community
through their financial and health success."
In advance of this
year's 40th celebration of the Bayou Classic, the Bayou Classic Roadshow
will travel to events and five football games this year, including both
Grambling and Southern universities'
homecoming games. The Bayou
Classic Roadshow gives fans an opportunity to participate in challenges,
win prizes, meet former Bayou Classic participants, and share why they
think their favorite team will win The Bayou Classic.
