Football and game shows have merged to combine for one of the most exciting competitions HBCUs have ever seen.
Battle of the Rivals matches up two rival historically Black colleges and challenges their football trivia knowledge for a chance to win cool prizes. This year’s show, brought to you by Cricket Wireless, took place in Washington, D.C, with host Jamal Jimoh quizzing the contestants on their knowledge of the classic sport.
In the first round, Team Royal Blue battled Team Light Blue in the “trivia” round with three questions about football terminology. Both teams got the first two answers incorrect, but Team Royal Blue ultimately won the round by answering the last question, “What do you call it when a player accidentally loses possession of the ball?” Answer? “Fumble!”
The competition goes for four rounds with a bonus round, crowning the winner of rivalry schools. Which school do you think knows more about football? Catch all the fun in the video above!
