Labor Day Weekend marks the start of college football season. Today sees Reliant Stadium hosting the 23rd Annual Labor Day Classic game between Texas Southern University and Prairie View A&M. The annual TSU/Prairie View game is the best of what college football has to offer. Its two teams who really, really dont like each other. Its two teams who dont just want to win, they want to pulverize somebody while theyre at it. (Its UT versus A&M, without ABC television, Thanksgiving leftovers and cameos from Hollywood stars.) And as if all that bone--breaking football isnt enough, the Labor Day Classic features outstanding half-time shows by each schools marching bands, both among the best in the country. The bands will battle to out-strut, out-dance, and outplay each other in a fight that will make the football look like a warm-up act.
Sat., Sept. 1, 7 p.m.
