BET Offers Another Season Of Black College Football

This fall, BET is on the field for every hard-hitting tackle and game-winning pass of Black College Football action! Scheduled is a lineup of six games pitting top college athletes and long-standing school rivals. The 25th season of football match-ups kicks off Saturday, September 3 at 7 p.m. ET with the Detroit Classic: Jackson Sate vs. Hampton University, from Ford Field in Detroit.

Lending their on-air expertise for each game are veteran sports anchor Eric Clemons, handling play-by-play calls; former New England Patriot, Jay Walker giving color commentary; and actor/comedian Joe Torry, on the sidelines catching all the action. The Black College Football tradition would not be complete without the excitement of famous “Showtime Half-Time” featuring half- time battles of the best college marching bands. BET will once again be on the field to bring viewers all of the thrills and antics of every half-time show.

“Black College Football has been a longstanding tradition with a loyal fan base on BET,” said Stephen Hill, BET’s Executive Vice President of Programming and Talent. “The intensity of the games combined with the thrilling half time performances make for some of the most exciting college match-ups on television.”
