The two schools met with a degree of regularity from the 1950s through the early 1980s, with the last matchup occurring in 1982...

Used to be a regular rivalry between the 2 TSU's back in the day when TSU [Nashville] played an independent football schedule. Joining the OVC in football kinda killed some of that.  I just wonder if they will continue playing Jackson State on a home-n-home basis at some point?

JT……about the ONLY thing you can be assured of concerning Tenn State football right now is that it is in a complete state of flux.  :shrug:

I could be wrong, but I don’t think scheduling the Swac TSU will generate ANY appreciable interest from Tn State’s fan base. The Swac TSU is as alien to Tn State’s fan base as the OVC TSU would be to folks in Houston. :shrug:

Wrong! That's the other thing you can be assured of. TnST fans will come out to see "ANY" hbcu game. As I've stated several times MVSU triple their conference games avg attendance. Hell D2 Lane double it.

The date is wrong.

We (Texas Southern) last played Tennessee State November 21, 1998 at Hale Stadium on their campus and not 1992 like the article states.

I was there. It was phrased, "Hale to the Hole". I actually have the t-shirt boxed up somewhere.

The score was 28-14 with Tennessee State on top.
