Marching Bands

The MEAC/SWAC Challenge wouldn’t be a classic without the famed marching bands. There will be multiple opportunities to see both the Alcorn State University Sounds of Dyo-O-mite and the PRIDE of Bethune-Cookman University.

A pep rally will occur on Saturday, September 3 at the Daytona Beach Bandshell at 2 PM. For more information regarding the pep rally, click here.


Both bands will play for 7 minutes at halftime of the game on Sunday, September 4. Be sure to stay in your seat after the game for more action as the bands battle it out in the 5th Quarter. For more information regarding the 5th quarter, click here.
