    HBCU Football Spectacles 2019: Hampton vs. Virginia Union

    HBCU Football Spectacles 2019: Hampton vs. Virginia Union

    If you're from the Mid-Atlantic area of the US and you're an HBCU football fan, then you know that the landscape there is chock full of colorful and storied institutions and rivalries. The CIAA (Central Intercollegiate Athletic Conference) and the MEAC (Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference) reign supreme in these parts, and they both have a rich and vibrant brand of sports culture. Hampton University's recent jump to the Big South Conference may have officially removed them from the MEAC as an athletic program, but they're still a huge part of the HBCU tradition that exists in the Virginia Corridor that's part of the footprint of both leagues. The long-standing 'Battle Of The Bay' rivalry of Hampton vs. Norfolk State has gotten most of the visibility over the years, but HU's conference move has put that on a bit of a hiatus. It's also allowed an older rivalry to be renewed. Virginia Union University is a small, private HBCU that's located in the state capital of Richmond, Virginia. The school is part of the CIAA and already has a nationally-recognized championship pedigree when it comes to hoops (they've got more National Championships at the NCAA Division II level than any other HBCU, at ANY level), but the match-ups on the gridiron with the then Hampton Institute back in the golden age of CIAA football were must-see attractions for the HBCU football head.

    The Buffalo Bills Season Is Finally upon Us and It Feels Different
