HBCU football has generally been dominated by four major conferences: The SWAC (Southwestern Athletic Conference), MEAC (Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference), CIAA (Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association), and SIAC (Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference). Some of the most prominent teams during the 1950s through the mid-1970s include Grambling, Florida A&M, Tennessee State, Prairie View A&M, Southern, Morgan State, Alcorn State, and Jackson State. At one point, only Notre Dame had more players in pro football than Grambling. This section includes stories about team histories, great seasons, classic games, and the incredible HBCU marching bands.
