After not playing each other for six years, Towson University and Morgan State have officially announced the revival of The Battle for Greater Baltimore, which will include annual games between the two Division I football teams over the next four years. The Battle will kick off (pun intended!) on Saturday, September 2, at 6:00 p.m. at Towson University. TU and Morgan State played nearly every season from 1979 through 2011, and we are excited to see this historical series return.

At a recent press conference, Towson University athletic director Tim Leonard said, “We are excited to renew the rivalry with Morgan State. The series is not only good for both universities, but it is also very beneficial to the Greater Baltimore community. Both myself and (Morgan State AD) Ed (Scott) are committed to playing this game as often as the schedule permits.”
