ESPN takes page out BET playbook, will broadcast MEAC band performances

After years of frustrations, HBCU football fans will finally get what they want from ESPN. And no, we aren’t talking about The Celebration Bowl. The Worldwide Leader has decided to show halftime performances by MEAC marching bands in their entirety, starting this fall.

// It’s a small move that could have a big payoff. For all but the diehard HBCU football fans, the halftime show is the main attraction in black college football. It’s one of the things BET got right when they broadcast black college football back in the day, and it’s about time it happened at ESPN.

While only the MEAC has been confirmed, expect the same to happen in the SWAC as it is also under contract with ESPN.
