Photo Galleries: I   II   III   IV    Famous Football Families   First 50 Years…  BC National Champions    H-Z



In 1892, two Black college teams met in a snowstorm and forged a rivalry and started a coalition of other Black college football teams that was the forerunner of today.
Early black college football national championship were considered mythical. In 1920, all that changed when an Black College National Champion was named by the Pittsburgh Courier at the end of the season.
Black college football flourished during the following decades, despite the Depression and World War II. Early dynasties were built at Howard University, Tuskegee Institute, Talledega College and Wiley College.
From the 1940’s on, Grambling College emerged behind the leadership of Hall of Fame Eddie Robinson. By 1949, he had developed bona fide pro stars in Paul “Tank” Younger (their first draft choice in the National Football Association) and Junious Buchanan. But he was not without formidable competition. Florida A&M was jump starting a 30-year span when they constantly claimed top spot in the Pittsburgh Courier ranking and had numerous players advance to the pros. Among the other top teams, Prairie View A&M had a pro prospect in quarterback Parnell Dickinson, and Tennessee State, Southern, and Morgan State were well represented in the pro leagues.
The influx of top talent continued well into the 1970s until integration prompted a drain of the top athletic and academic talent that Black colleges normally enrolled.
However, Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) still compete at a high level and annually achieve above expectations.
