This year's Aggie-Eagle Classic matchup between the North Carolina A&T Aggies and North Carolina Central (NCCU) Eagles is the 100th installment and has been recoined as the 2022 Duke's Mayo Classic.
HBCU game atmosphere was on full display from the teams, marching bands, dancers, students, and alums cheering at the 100th matchup.
They played the 2022 Duke's Mayo Classic at Bank of America Stadium in front of 35,798 fans. The arena proved to be the perfect venue for such a historical event.
