Magic City Classic moved to the Spring
« on: July 22, 2020, 07:48:51 AM »
With the SWAC postponing all fall sports, that mean’s no Magic City Classic this year, but that doesn’t mean the historic game is cancelled.

“The Magic City Classic is not cancelled. It’s been moved to the spring,” said Perren King, Senior Sales Director with the Bruno Event Team.

This fall would have been the 79th Magic City Classic between Alabama A&M and Alabama State, but instead, fans will now celebrate it’s rich tradition in the spring due to COVID-19.

Wonder if the dress up crowd will break out the full length minks in the spring as they used to do in the fall....but that demographic group is getting smaller...

Didn't say they shouldn't just wondering if they will.  Not sure if you will get the same support with them being 6 months apart. :shrug:  That's home so I'm going if they play ten times in the street, that is if COVID is under control by then.
