47th Annual Bayou Classic

April 17, 2021

The Bayou Classic is the annual college football game between the Grambling State University Tigers and the Southern University Jaguars. Due to the Phase 2 renovation work beginning in January 2021 at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, the annual home of the Bayou Classic, this rescheduled annual match-up between the Grambling Tigers and the Southern Jaguars had to be temporarily moved to Shreveport, La.

“The Bayou Classic is a long-standing tradition that we are excited to have come to Shreveport. We are proud to be a part of ensuring the continuity of this game that spans decades,” said Shreveport Mayor Adrian Perkins.
More details regarding the Bayou Classic will be released at a future date.
