The Red River State Fair Classic (formerly the State Fair Classic and, more recently, the Shreveport Classic) is an American college football game played annually in Shreveport, Louisiana, at Independence Stadium (formerly State Fair Stadium) during the State Fair of Louisiana. It traces its historical lineage from a series of 160 games played over the 106 football seasons between 1911 and 2016. By having first paired historically black colleges and universities in 1922, the contest holds the distinction of being the oldest annual black college football classic, edging out the Turkey Day Classic by two years and the similar Texas State Fair Classic by three years. Also, so far, the earliest documented use of the term "classic" as part of an annual black college football game's formal name
