HIGHLIGHTS FROM 2013!

As in previous years, the Classic game was the height of an entire weekend of educational and entertaining events that began Thursday, September 5 and included a Presidential Symposium, AT&T Kickoff Rally, Howard vs. Morehouse Student Debate and the Pepsi® Fan Festival. Notable celebrity guest stars and performers included Grammy-nominated recording artist Ciara, who headlined the AT&T Kickoff Rally, and entertainment personality Fonzworth Bentley and actress Wendy Raquel Robinson, who co-hosted the rally. Grammy-nominated singer Raheem DeVaughn, Experience Unlimited (E.U.) and Mambo Sauce performed at the Pepsi® Fan Festival.

Prior to kickoff, DC Washington, a 22-year veteran of the United States Army and noted national choir performer, sung the national anthem. Chelsey Rodgers, Miss District of Columbia International 2010 and an alumna of Spelman College and Howard University School of Law, performed "Lift Every Voice." Washington, D.C. Mayor Vincent Gray conducted the ceremonial coin toss with Jay Ellis of BET's "The Game." The halftime show was co-hosted by Ellis and LeToya Luckett of Centric's "Culture List" and featured the highly anticipated "Battle of the Bands" between the Howard University Showtime Marching Band and the Morehouse College House of Funk.

Howard University took home the coveted AT&T Nation's Football Classic trophy for the 3rd time with a 27-16 victory over the Maroon Tigers and Greg McGhee was named MVP. Check out the full 2013 recap video
