2. Pre-Game Concert With Cee-Lo Green

Multi-talented and unapologetically flamboyant, CeeLo Green made a name for himself with his soulful trademark crooning as a member of Goodie Mob before he broke away in the early 2000s for a colorful and unpredictable career as a solo artist and collaborator.

3. Football Game Between Grambling State & Praire View


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.

4. The Halftime Show Featuring The Battle Of The Bands

If you're unaware how HBCU classics go, you want your football team to win and you also want your BAND TO WIN. The "Game Inside The Game" will be the battle of the bands at halftime and you're going to enjoy it!

5. Post-Game Concert With Chrisette Michele

In a very short span of time, R&B singer/songwriter Chrisette Michele shot from small-time performer to one of Def Jam's most promising talents, purely based on her unique instrument -- a gorgeous and effortlessly versatile singing voice colored with Billie Holiday-esque inflections of vocal pop and jazz.
