Ohio Stadium to Host HBCU Classic for Columbus in August: The Central State Marauders will face off against the Kentucky State Thorobreds on Aug. 28.

By Matt Tamanini, SB Nation

It was announced on Tuesday that Columbus would play host to a new annual event, the HBCU Classic for Columbus. The week-long festivities will feature the Central State and Kentucky State football teams squaring off in Ohio Stadium on Saturday, Aug. 28. And — as I am sure you know — Central State will have the home-state advantage, as they hail from Wilberforce, Ohio, just about 20 miles east of Dayton.

The CSU Marauders hold a 36-23-1 edge over the Kentucky State Thorobreds in a rivalry dating back to 1947. Though both teams are members of the Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference, the game will be considered a non-conference matchup. The Marauders did not play last season due to the pandemic, and this will be their first game in nearly two years.
