2013 HBCU Classics Bring The Fun.

At the McDonald’s 2013 HBCU Classics, six historically black colleges were set to face off in epic football battles. McDonald¹s geared up personalized experiences for each Classic and marched out delicious samples of McCafé Blueberry Pomegranate and Mango Pineapple Smoothies.

The first stop was the Atlanta Football Classic where North Carolina A&T University took on South Carolina State University in the Georgia Dome. As the Halftime Sponsor, McDonald’s brought along several games and free giveaways. And, of course, Ronald kept fans moving with a special dance cam.

Next stop: Indianapolis, Indiana where the Tigers of Grambling State fought the Alcorn State Braves in the Circle City Classic. McDonald’s joined fans in the Classic’s parade and participated in the football and cheerleading clinic.

The final stop saw the return of Florida A&M University’s Marching “100” battle it out against Bethune‐Cookman University in the sunshine state during the Florida Blue Florida Classic. During the third quarter of the football classic, McDonald's NBMOA Representatives Lanny Sumpter and Anthony Grissette presented two 10,000 checks to Florida A&M University and Bethune‐Cookman University to help increase educational resources.
