Scope of Services

NOCCI was originally awarded the contract for the 2011 and 2012 Bayou Classic, the annual meeting of HBCU rivals Grambling State University and Southern University: The Bayou Classic is a football game and so much more!

The Bayou Classic commemorates historically black colleges and universities, academic achievement, tradition, sportsmanship, marching bands, and friendly competition. The “Classic” is an exhibition of the high standards of academic achievement deeply embedded in the traditions of the two institutions. With the success of the 38th Annual Bayou Classic the NOCCI contract was extended up until 2015. The 2015 Bayou Classic was the most successful one yet with over 60,000 attendees.
