Florida Blue Florida Classic weekend is where college friends reunite, families come together, and fans show out for an O-town Showdown to witness the FAMU Rattlers and B-CU Wildcats battle it out on the gridiron for bragging rights.

The Florida Classic, formally the Florida Blue Florida Classic, is a friendly annual college football rivalry game between two of Florida’s most popular HBCUs (historically black colleges/universities). One of the schools is Florida A&M University (FAMU), a large public university in Tallahassee, while the other is Bethune–Cookman University (B-CU), a small private school in Volusia County.
The Classic boasts strong economic, cultural, and social significance. As such, it also serves as a successful fundraiser for education initiatives at both universities. The Florida Classic is a major event for people all over the state and the nation to celebrate their culture, diversity, and love for the rival teams. The game also offers a perfect opportunity to meet and bond with family, friends, colleagues, and college comrades over a competitive game, good food, and great music.Read More at Florida Classic
