Week 1 served as the kickoff of the HBCU football season.
The marquee event of the weekend was the Orange Blossom Classic between Jackson State and Florida A&M and along with several traditional Labor Day weekend matchups involving Prairie View A&M vs. Texas Southern and Alabama State vs. Miles College.
Other events included the Black College Football Hall of Fame Classic between Central State and Winston-Salem State and the Red Tails Classic between Tuskegee and Fort Valley State.
