Dallas, TX had a lot of HBCU Love as the Prarie View A&M Panthers took on the Grambling State Tigers in the most anticipated games of the year — the annual State Fair Classic.
This year, no matter whether you were rooting for Prairie View or Grambling, you were treated to the ultimate fan experience at the HBCU Love tailgate. Fans stuffed purple Crown Royal bags full of goodies for U.S. Veterans benefiting the organization Packages From Home. Participants were treated to custom Crown Royal hoodies in appreciation of their generous spirit. In addition, everyone got to enjoy a silent listening party, a virtual reality experience, and popcorn.
Attendees were also encouraged to show their love for HBCUs by supporting the National Black College Alumni Hall of Fame Foundation.
Prairie View ended up securing the win against Grambling State, with 22-16 but that didn’t stop the good times from rolling. When the sun went down, the after party went up and everyone had an amazing time turning the kickback to a full VIP lounge type experience.
If that wasn’t enough, Joe Torry and Bruh Man were in the building keeping the laughs flowing ALL DAY (and night)!
