2014 Chicago Football Classic

The Chicago Football Classic is a unique football event that has become much more than just a football again. With some major talent on the field, a great community-based goal backing it up and great fans that pour into the stands, this is a game that has be seen first-hand to be truly appreciated. There is nothing quite like being there when the game is on the line and the Chicago Football Classic is heating up, as you'll see what it's like to watch college football at its absolutely most pure form. Be there for all of the bone-jarring hits, spectacular catches and nail-biting moments that will have you jumping out of your seat in no time.

And that's because this is just one of those games that tends to get circled on the calendars of big-time college football fans, and if you get out to see the action for yourself, you'll understand what all the buzz is about. As Morehouse and Central State hit the gridiron to battle it out in this riveting, early-season historical matchup, there has never been a better time to put down the remote and make sure that you get right into the heart of the excitement. Of course, it also doesn't hurt that the game goes down at Soldier Field, one of the most legendary football venues in the world and the home of the Chicago Bears. But when two teams like Morehouse and Central State take the field, it will all be about college football.
