The Pioneer Bowl


 

The first Black colleges to play in the Pioneer Bowl were the 1972 Tennessee State Tigers and the 1978 Florida A&M Rattlers. It was 19 years later before the next Black college football teams appeared when Kentucky State met Livingstone College (1997). Since then, either the Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association and the Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference has sent at least one team to the bowl game. It is one of only three NCAA Division II sanctioned bowl games featuring historically black colleges and universities. Tuskegee University has made the most appearances at the Pioneer Bowl with nine and the leads the chart with seven Pioneer Bowls victories.
