Morehouse College and Howard University meet in the 2014 AT&T Nation’s Football Classic Saturday, Sept. 13 at RFK Stadium marking the end of a remarkable four-year run in the football game for the two premier institutions. The inaugural Classic reignited the historic football rivalry between the schools in 2011, and launched a thrilling new sports tradition in the nation’s capital.

“Building the AT&T Nation’s Football Classic has been a labor of love, and we’ve been honored to have great partners like Howard and Morehouse help us develop and showcase the event as a four-day experience,” said Erik A. Moses, managing director of Events DC’s Sports and Entertainment Division. “The pageantry, camaraderie and competition we’ve seen each year has been everything we’ve expected and more. It has been a pleasure to kick off this Classic with two schools that feature a shared narrative and passionate rivalry on and off the field.”

The events leading up to the game have been a hit each year. The 2014 weekend, set for Thursday, Sept. 11 through Sunday, Sept. 14, includes the Presidential Symposium, AT&T Kickoff Rally, Pepsi Fan Festival, Chapel Service and assorted parties and receptions.

“We’ve made a concerted effort to offer a variety of events throughout the weekend because from the onset, our goal was to compliment the game with activities that highlighted education, networking and entertainment,” added Moses. “We’re excited for the Classic’s future, and the competition to come. Stay tuned for updates in early 2015 on the next matchup.”
