With the Southern Heritage Classic heading into its 23rd year, founder Fred Jones recently announced that Tennessee State and Jackson State have agreed to reserve the second Saturday in September for each other at Liberty Bowl Memorial Stadium through the 2019 season.
“It allows us to continue to plan,” Jones said. “All these companies that are here … they’re making long-term plans. I talked to the schools and we were able to clear both conferences’ … long-term schedule and make sure that these dates were in place going forward.”
