Labor Day Classic TicketsThe Labor Day Classic is a college football tradition between archrivals Texas Southern Tigers and Prairie View A&M Panthers that you don’t want to miss. Though the Labor Day Classic has only been official since 1985, the teams have been facing off every year since 1947. The game is typically the first game of the Southwestern Athletic Conference and falls over Labor Day weekend. Should either team be involved in other obligations, the Labor Day Classic is rescheduled for the last game of the season. Named for Alexander Durley (TSU) and Billy Nicks Sr., two of the schools’ legendary coaches, the highly coveted Durley-Nicks trophy is at stake in the Labor Day Classic. The game is played at the BBVA Compass Stadium when it is hosted by the Texas Southern Tigers or at the New Panther Stadium at Blackshear Field when it is hosted by the Prairie View A&M Panthers.
