September 25, 2021
The Gulf Coast Challenge Powered by the Mobile Sports Authority presents two Historically Black Colleges and Universities in a classic showdown. The Ultimate HBCU Experience is Saturday, September 25, 2021, at 4:00 PM at Ladd-Peebles Stadium, featuring the Golden Tigers of Tuskegee University vs. the Bulldogs of Alabama A&M University. HBCU football isn't just about football...the half-time show should be a show-stopper with the Tuskegee University Marching Crimson Piper Band and the Alabama A&M Maroon and White Band.
Before game day, there is a week of festivities. Some highlights of the week include the Kickoff Concert featuring Reuben Studdard in Cathedral Square on Tuesday evening. A Pep Rally followed by a concert featuring the Ying Yang Twins in Cathedral Square on Friday night. There is even a Gulf Coast Challenge Parade on Saturday morning. Once the game is over, stay put for a post-game concert featuring Bel Biv Devoe. Don't miss the fun!?
