This Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) football matchup is scheduled to be played at the University of Central Florida (UCF) on Sunday, August 31.

The MEAC/SWAC Challenge will also be broadcast on ESPN during the opening weekend of college football. The game is the first meeting between the two universities.

More than 20,000 fans are expected to attend the game. The MEAC/SWAC Challenge is a weekend that celebrates the contributions of HBCU’s and their alumni.

“With its celebration of diversity, football and HBCU heritage, we always look forward to the MEAC/SWAC Challenge,” said Nancy Gidusko, director of Corporate Citizenship for the Walt Disney World Resort. “But as we celebrate the 10th anniversary of the weekend’s events here in Central Florida, this year promises to be even more fantastic.”

The game will be played at the Bright House Networks Stadium for the first time. In the past the game was played at the Florida Citrus Bowl Stadium, but that stadium is undergoing renovations.
