Tuskegee Hampton

In 1893 baseball was the first sport played at Tuskegee and in 1894 Tuskegee played its first football game against Atlanta University. In 1908 men’s and women’s basketball began at Tuskegee. In 1913 Tuskegee joined 9 other schools in Atlanta to form the Southeastern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference. In 1916 men’s and women’s track began at Tuskegee and in 1923 men’s and women’s tennis began at Tuskegee. In 1955 Tuskegee became an affiliate-member of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA). In 1962 a 9-hole golf course was developed at Moton Field and was used until 1971.

Today, Tuskegee University and Clark Atlanta University are the only 2 schools with continuous membership of the SIAC in NCAA Division II. Since the 1970s Tuskegee’s main rival universities have all departed Division II SIAC and CIAA for Divison I MEAC and SWAC. Today, it is very rare, if at all, that Tuskegee plays its sister institution Hampton University or a once regional rival Florida A&M University. Tuskegee in fact is the only university of its historical athletic status that has remained in Division II.

Today, Alabama State University, Alabama A&M University, Division II Morehouse College and Clark Atlanta University are the only traditional rivals that Tuskegee continues to compete against. Morehouse College most recently began playing Division I Howard University once again in football. But, Tuskegee does not play Howard University.

Tuskegee has a long strong history in athletics and thus should not once again miss the opportunity to advance its athletic programs to a higher level and offer more sports to women and the demand of a future student population.

Division I is the highest level of intercollegiate athletics sanctioned by the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) in the United States. Division I was further subdivided into Division I-A and Division I-AA in 1978 and in 2006 renamed Division I-A to “Football Bowl Subdivision” and Division I-AA to “Football Championship Subdivision”. There are no subdivision for any other sport in Division I other than for football. All other athletics programs are Division I. All other athletics teams are eligible to compete for Division I championships such as inclusions in the Men’s and Women’s Basketball Tournament.

Football Bowl Subdivision Schools in Division I (FBS) compete in post-season bowl games. FBS schools are limited to a total of 85 football players receiving financial assistance. As of 2010, there are 120 full members of Division I FBS.

Basketball returns to Jenison Field House

Michigan State University

Aug. 7, 2012

EAST LANSING, Mich. – For half a century, Jenison Field House was the home for Spartan basketball. And while there were numerous great Spartan moments, one of the most historically significant events did not involve Michigan State, when during the 1963 NCAA Basketball Tournament, Mississippi State, consisting entirely of white players, defied a state prohibition against playing integrated teams and faced Loyola, which started four African-Americans, in the Mideast Region semifinals in Jenison Field House. This season, Michigan State will celebrate the 50th anniversary season of that historic game by playing a game in Jenison Field House for the first time since 1989. The Jenison Jubilee will include the Spartans hosting Tuskegee University on Dec. 15, a pre-game concert by The Commodores on Dec. 15, and a reunion game on Dec. 14. The Jenison Jubilee will conclude with a women’s game vs. IPFW in Jenison on Sunday, Dec. 16.

Since Jenison Field House first opened in 1940, it has been the site of memories for nearly every Spartan,” said Michigan State Athletics Director Mark Hollis. “For me, and many others, the most vivid memories are the games when Earvin Johnson led the Spartans to the 1979 NCAA Championship. But before that, 50 years ago this season, it was the site of a historic NCAA Tournament game between Loyola and Mississippi State. It was called “The Game of Change” and many are unaware that the game was played in East Lansing at Jenison Field House. Since Spartan basketball left Jenison, many have dreamed of seeing it return for a game. The celebration of one of the great historical events in Field House history generated the desire to make these dreams come true during the 2012-2013 season..
