    The Celebration Bowl is a postseason college football bowl game, first played in the 2015 season, contested between the champions of the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference and the Southwestern Athletic Conference —the two prominent conferences of historically black colleges and universities in NCAA Division I.

    Deion Sanders, Jackson State Ready for HBCU Showdown in Celebration Bowl

    ATLANTA — From Jackson State's victory over Alcorn State in its final regular-season matchup to its win over Prairie View A&M in the SWAC Championship game on Dec. 4, Deion Sanders's message to his players remained the same: We not done yet, we got one more.


    The Tigers (11–1, 8–0) will play in their first Celebration Bowl in program history when they take the field Saturday against South Carolina State at noon E. In a clash between champions of the Southwestern Athletic Conference (SWAC) and the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC), Sanders and Jackson State have another opportunity to add more history to an unprecedented 2021 season.

    With a fourth HBCU national championship on the line on Saturday, the Tigers have the opportunity to put the exclamation mark on an historic ’21 season in the city that the NFL Hall of Famer calls home. In his 14-year NFL career between the Falcons (first-round draft choice in ’89), 49ers, Cowboys, Washington Football Team and the Ravens, it was the city of Atlanta that chose Sanders.

    I’m sure Jackson State will blow them out. They have better talent and sanders superior coaching skills.

    wait, what? Never mind.

    I think I was expecting more of Coach Prime. I had to switch to the South Dakota State @ Montana to see who plays North Dakota.
