ABOUT THE STATE FAIR CLASSIC

The State Fair Classic is an annual college football game between the Grambling State University Tigers and the Prairie View A&M University Panthers of the Southwestern Athletic Conference. The State Fair Classic, held annually at the Cotton Bowl in Dallas, Texas, began in 1925 featuring the Wiley College Wildcats and Langston University Lions. The first game was played on Monday, October 19, 1925. Both teams met four consecutive years in Dallas before Prairie View replaced Langston in 1929. An early concept of “Monday Night Football” could also be attributed to the Texas State Fair Classic and Louisiana’s own State Fair Classic, as the contests took place on Monday nights from the 1920s into the 1960s.
