MEMPHIS, Tenn. — The the 29th annual Southern Heritage Classic football game was canceled Saturday night due to weather.
The game is played between rivals Tennessee State and Jackson State at the Liberty Bowl but lightning and rain prevented the game from even starting. The game was officially called at roughly 9:40 p.m. after waiting nearly three and half hours.
On Sunday morning, officials announced that the game will not be rescheduled, citing conflicting schedules for Tennessee State and Jackson State.
Officials say this is the first year that the game was not played.
