More football is coming to Yankee Stadium that will again be the site of a classic matchup as Hampton University will oppose Morgan State University Nov. 17 in the Bronx. The two-year agreement calls for the two schools to play at the Stadium in 2013 as well.
The original Yankee Stadium was the site of what became known as the annual New York Urban League Football Classic from 1968-73 and again from 1976-87. Morgan State played 11 times in the game, going 1-10 against Grambling and head coach Eddie Robinson each time. It will mark Hampton’s first football game at the Stadium, original or current.
“It’s wonderful that the New York Urban League Football Classic can once again call Yankee Stadium its home,” Yankees managing general partner Hal Steinbrenner said. “As everyone knows, college football was a passion of my father’s, as was providing opportunities for future generations. The return of this rich tradition showcases both of those tenets, and our organization couldn’t be prouder to be hosting the NYUL Football Classic this fall.”
Now in its fourth year of existence, the current Yankee Stadium has already been the site to elite college football games: the annual New Era Pinstripe Bowl, the 50th all-time matchup between Notre Dame and Army in 2010 and Army vs. Rutgers in 2011. The home of the Yankees will be the site of Army vs. Boston College in November 2014. Additionally, the Public School Athletic League Football Championship Game has been held at the Stadium in each of the past two years.
Since its inception, proceeds from the New York Urban League Football Classic have helped to leverage more than $20 million in Whitney M. Young, Jr. Educational Scholarships to nearly 4,000 college-bound students.
Whitney M. Young, Jr., after whom the scholarship was named, was president of the National Urban League. His distinguished career was marked by his effectiveness in bringing the business community into full participation in the struggle for civil rights. Young focused on gaining equality for black people in business and politics, along with improving opportunities for the urban poor. The New York Urban League continues the mission to enable African-Americans and other under-served communities to secure a first-class education, economic self-reliance and equal respect of civil rights through programs, services and advocacy in a highly diversified city.
The original Stadium had a long association with numerous college and professional football classics. It served as home of the old New York Yankees football team and the New York Giants as well as the secondary football home for New York University from 1923-48.
As one of the world’s most prestigious addresses, the original Stadium was also home to scores of other sports, entertainment and cultural events, including boxing, pro football, soccer, political assemblies, three Papal masses, religious conventions, concerts, NYU commencement and the circus.

Army played 38 times at the original Stadium and compiled a record of 14 victories, 19 losses and 5 ties.
