The Grambling vs. Prairie View game brings nearly 65,000 fans to Dallas annually. One of the highlights of the weekend is the halftime extravaganza put on by the school’s bands from both schools. The big game will be on Saturday, Oct. 6 at the Cotton Bowl- Fair Park at 6 p.m.
The classic showdown of the Grambling State University Tigers vs. the Panthers of Prairie View A&M University at the Cotton Bowl began in the 1940s. It’s like a semi class reunion for the people who graduated from both schools and the game runs concurrently with the State Fair of Texas. One of the best HBCU football games of the season, last Year Prairie View A&M beat Grambling 31-23.
