A football's distinctive construction allows it to be thrown in a tight spiral, kicked through the uprights, or filled with helium so that it can return to its mother, the blimp overhead. Take possession with this GrouponLive deal to see the MEAC/SWAC Challenge between the Bethune-Cookman Wildcats and the Alabama State Hornets at the Florida Citrus Bowl. For $12, you get one ticket for general-admission seating, which is available in every section except 109 and 131, on Sunday, September 2, at noon (up to a $32.75 value, including all ticketing fees). Doors open at 10 a.m.

For the eighth year in a row, the MEAC/SWAC Challenge steadies a spotlight over historically black colleges and universities, pitting the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference against the Southwestern Athletic Conference in a gridiron clash for conference supremacy. Representing the MEAC—which has won five of the event's first seven games—the Bethune-Cookman Wildcats enter the matchup with a chance to become the first team to win the challenge in back-to-back seasons. Last year, the Wildcats stomped Prairie View A&M 63-14 during a game that featured three touchdowns by former Wildcats quarterback Jamarr Robinson and one MVP-winning performance by an exhausted scoreboard operator. Meanwhile, Alabama State counters with firepower of their own after posting an impressive 8-3 record in 2011.

A full schedule packs events in around the game, including a pep rally on Saturday, a praise service on Sunday morning, and The Great Heart & Soul tailgate prior to kickoff. There, fans can avoid creating their own pregame rituals, such as eating taco dip out of a foam finger, and instead enjoy the established traditions of live music, cook-offs, food exhibits, and more. The festive atmosphere continues at halftime of the game and right after the final whistle, as both school bands spar note for note during Battle of the Bands performances.
