New postseason all-star game coming to college football
Some interesting news was released from New Orleans on Thursday as the formation of the HBCU Legacy Bowl was just announced.
The game won’t be a traditional bowl game, instead, it will serve as a showcase all-star game featuring the best talent from historically black colleges and universities hoping to extend their playing careers to the game’s highest level.
The first HBCU Legacy Bowl is set to debut in February of 2022, the weekend after the upcoming Super Bowl. The game will be held at Tulane’s Yulman Stadium in New Orleans and will be broadcast live by the NFL Network.
“The HBCU Legacy Bowl means opportunity and exposure for HBCU players and coaches,” said Co-Founder and Inductee Doug Williams. “We’re excited to have this in New Orleans, especially during Black History Month.”
Here is the official announcement from the HBCU Legacy Bowl Twitter account.
