This week’s top five halftime list serves as a perfect example of just how dynamic HBCU marching bands are.
With most of the attention focused on the annual “Boombox Classic” featuring Jackson State and Southern and the entertaining pettiness that typically comes with it, there were still a number of impressive performances that dedicated shows to lost loved ones and one in particular focused solely on gospel and praise.
