HBCU Legacy Bowl Game

HBCU Legacy Bowl Game

Feb. 25, Saturday, 4 pm est – NFL Network
   Yulman Stadium, Tulane University, New Orleans, La

The HBCU Legacy Bowl is a postseason HBCU football All-Star game, highlighting the top draft-eligible prospects from Historically Black Colleges and Universities. The HBCU Legacy Bowl began in 2022 and is presented yearly by the Black College Football Hall of Fame. In 2023, the HBCU Legacy Bowl partnered with the NFL to host the HBCU Combine ahead of the game. The Combine occurred earlier this week with many of the players in this game.

The two HBCU Legacy Bowl teams are Team Gaither and Team Robinson, named after legendary HBCU head coaches Jake Gaither (Florida A&M) and Eddie Robinson (Grambling St.). Team Gaither will be led by co-head coaches Richard Hayes Jr. (Fayetteville St.) and Trei Oliver (North Carolina Central). Team Robinson will be led by co-head coaches Chennis Berry (Benedict College) and Eric Dooley (Southern University).

The HBCU Legacy Bowl selected Saints quarterback Jameis Winston and former Saints left tackle Terron Armstead as Honorary Captains for this year’s event.

Winston and Armstead are founding partners with the HBCU Legacy Bowl and other NFL players, such as NFL MVP and Super Bowl LVII champion Patrick Mahomes, who was the event’s inaugural honorary captain.

The second HBCU Legacy Bowl will showcase prospects hoping to earn a roster spot in the NFL, CFL, USFL, XFL, or other professional leagues. The event will be held at Tulane University’s Yulman Stadium at 3:00 pm CT on Feb. 25. The NFL Network will broadcast the contest with Steve Wyche (play-by-play) and Charles Davis (color analyst) in the booth.
