Each year there are hundreds of black college football games that happen throughout the fall school season. Thousands of people jam pack stadiums all over the country every weekend to cheer on their favorite college team.
It becomes a yearly event from late August to late November for people, alumni and current students to drive 100's of miles to come and visit friends, see old ones and establish new ones during what are called Black College Classics.
However, there is something extra special about these types of college games that does not exist for other more traditioanl college sporting leagues.
While most colleges have halftime shows with marching bands...Historically Black Colleges and Universities have halftime shows that rival the game itself. In fact, most people will tell you they come to watch the bands more than anything else..
When the halftime show is ready, no one takes a break, no one goes to get popcorn, no one goes to get a soda. All eyes are on the field for some of the most electrofying displays of showmanship, sparkle, music and serious competitiveness in the country.

Three years ago, we first introduced to you a brand new event that would become the Superbowl of College Marching Bands.
In fact, last year Black Beach Week pushed this event so solidly that it sold out the entire 60,000 seat dome and had people begging for a ticket to get in.
As this year's college football season begins, the highly-anticipated Honda Battle of the Bands program also kicks into high gear.
This isn't a football game anymore. This is serious. This for bragging rights on seeing who has the best showstopping college or university marching band in the world.
For the fourth consecutive year, 41 Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) will participate in this one-of-a-kind program that highlights the historic spirit, pageantry and showmanship of the HBCU marching bands.
The Honda Battle of the Bands offers a grand stage to showcase these dynamic music programs, which will "battle" throughout the Celebration Tour for a coveted spot at the Invitational Showcase.
As the sponsor, American Honda Motor Co., Inc. will award a total of $141,000 in grants to the participating marching bands, including $1,000 to each for their halftime performances at selected football games throughout the season.
Now, it's your turn to witness the excitement as the third annual Battle of The Bands 2006 gets under way.
