HBCU rivals Central State University and Kentucky State University will kick off the 2021 football season on August 28 in the inaugural Classic for Columbus on the campus of Ohio State University.
The game, which will be played as a non-conference contest in Ohio Stadium, features a CSU-KSU rivalry dating back to 1947 with CSU leading the all-time series, 36-23-1.
Due to the global pandemic, Central State did not participate in athletic competition during the 2019-2020 season. CSU Director of Athletics Tara A. Owens expressed gratitude and excitement about Central State’s return to the field in August.
