CHICAGO (CBS) — Thousands of fans packed Soldier Field  Saturday for the annual College Football Classic.

And it’s so much more than a game. Marching bands were a big part of the show as Morehouse College took on Miles College.

At the Chicago Football Classic, there’s everything from college recruitment to step competitions to the actual football game.

Every year, the game spotlights historically black colleges and universities. Organizers said the event encourages young people to pursue higher education.
