The HBCU Pigskin Showdown has announced the football game set to be held in Selma in December will be aired at HBCUGO.TV.
The college football post-season all-star game for standout draft-eligible players from historically black colleges and universities will be held at Memorial Stadium on Dec. 11, 2021.
HBCUGO.TV has agreed to be the game’s official broadcast home.
“It is an honor and privilege to be the media partner for the first Annual HBCU Pigskin Showdown. Our goal is to provide exposure to top notch talent from Historically Black Colleges and Universities but, as importantly, showcase the rich heritage of Selma as a cultural destination and celebrate the impact and legacy of a historic city that changed the narrative of the civil rights movement globally,” said Curtis Symonds, Co-Founder/CEO of HBCUGO.TV.
The game will not only be a showcase for HBCU players in front of pro scouts, it will also be a week-long celebration of African American culture, education and heritage by gathering fans and supporters of HBCUs from all over the country to historic Selma.
Clint Evans, Co-Founder/General Manager of HBCUGO.TV, said, “We aim to provide students, alumni and the greater community of HBCU enthusiasts with up close and personal access to the HBCU Pigskin Showdown while also capturing the diversity of experiences, perspectives, and aspects of 'The Culture' that exist only at HBCUs.”
"We are honored to bring this event to the masses of HBCU supporters through HBCUGO.TV," said Chris Williams, Executive Director/Co-Founder of the HBCU Pigskin Showdown.

With the steady decline of HBCU players in the NFL since the 1990’s, the HBCU Pigskin Showdown and HBCUGO.TV believe that this annual event will help greatly in putting a spotlight on the many talented players of HBCU.
