Texas Southern University vs Southern University
On October 20, 2018, the Tigers of Texas Southern University will take the field to do battle against the Jaguars of Southern University, at the State Fair Football Showdown. But let’s just be real, it’s not just another football game and it’s not just four quarters. The show starts at Halftime. This time, Halftime will be bigger than any other Halftime show in State Fair history. It’s more than just bragging rights; this is the battle that will answer the question, “Who rocks the house the best?”
Southern University brings from Baton Rouge, Louisiana, the internationally renowned Human Jukebox, which sits at the top of the hill of HBCU Bands. However, TSU will have something to say about that, because as far as they are concerned, there is none better. Texas Southern rolls in with the 9th wonder of the world directly from Houston, Texas, The Ocean of Soul.
There will be no sitting during this halftime! There will be no restroom or concession breaks, this is why the stands will be filled to capacity. The Human Jukebox will perform a high-stepping midfield drill while blowing loud, with precision that is second to none. But for Texas Southern, it’s not the size of the ship that makes you sick, it’s the motion of The Ocean. And at the State Fair of Texas they will be looking to drown the Jukebox in it’s Ocean of Soul. This Halftime Showtime is worth the price of admission, and it’s worth coming from wherever you need to come from to be there!
