There likely was no official notice to indicate as much, but it appeared that “Old School” was the rule for HBCU band halftime shows last week.
Our top five list of performances is rich with some surprisingly pleasant old tunes that some may not have heard in a while and features a band performance from the CIAA we found to be delightful.
Two of the bands on the list are on a collision course to meet this weekend in a much-anticipated matchup that historically hasn’t only been highly entertaining but playfully petty.
