The Chicago Football Classic 2013 at Soldier Field between Morehouse College and Central State University will be sponsored by BMO Harris Bank.

The game is scheduled for Saturday, September 21.

The Chicago Football Classic was the brainchild of a group of African-American businessman in 1997. Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, who announced the BMO Harris sponsorship on Wednesday, said the Chicago Football Classic is a great opportunity for students in the city of Chicago to learn more about the college experience.
