At the McDonald’s 2014 HBCU Classics, six historically black colleges faced off in epic football battles as McDonald’s delivered one-of-a-kind experiences and the hottest of Halftime Shows for fans.
First, the Grambling State Tigers and Prairie View A&M Panthers met at the Cotton Bowl Stadium at the historic State Fair Classic. McDonald’s treated 100 lucky fans to a VIP Fan Experience full of prizes and exclusive swag while everyone who stopped by the tailgate booth had the chance to sample a delicious McCafé® Blueberry Pomegranate or Mango Pineapple Smoothie. McDonald’s also presented two $5,000 checks to Grambling State and Prairie View A&M Universities to help increase educational resources.
Next up was the Atlanta Football Classic where North Carolina A&T took on South Carolina State in the Georgia Dome. As the Halftime Sponsor, McDonald’s presented a battle of the bands featuring the North Carolina A&T “Blue and Gold Marching Machine” against their rival “The Marching 101” of South Carolina State University. And, of course, Ronald McDonald kept the crowd moving to the beat. Celebrities and fans descended on downtown Atlanta for a weekend filled with community service, education seminars and socializing.
The final stop will be the Florida Blue Florida Classic where Florida A&M and Bethune‐Cookman Universities meet up once again. Come back to www.365Black.com for exclusive event photos!
