CIAA Kicks off 125 Years of Black College Football Celebration   Bri Funte
 The 2017 football season marks the 125th anniversary of the first recorded black college football game, which began with two CIAA member institutions.  In a snowstorm on December 27, 1892, Johnson C. Smith University, then named Biddle University, traveled for two days by horse and buggy to Salisbury, North Carolina to play against Livingstone College for the first-ever black college football contest. The Golden Bulls defeated the Blue Bears 5-0 after a disputed Livingstone touchdown was called back by the official.  Every year, the two schools come together to celebrate this Commemorative Classic and this year we celebrate 125 years! link 

Golden Bulls shutout the Blue Bears 19 to 0 on Saturday October 7th, 2006 to take a 39-28-4 lead in the series. Video
