The Battle of the Boarder will take place this Friday in Corbett Sports Arena.

This year the Blue and Gold Marching Machine of North Carolina A&T State University will host the South Carolina State University Marching 101 for the second time in history.

The show begins at 6 p.m. Tickets are on sale at the ticket office, $10 in advance and $12 on the day of the event.

Also known as the “Rivalry Classic,” the event will feature the two bands as they engage in a “band brawl,” much like the Norfolk State Spartan Legion-Marching

Machine Brawl that took place earlier in the season.

The brawl will consist of several segments showcasing the ensembles in music, dance, and spirit. The segments include ensemble and sectional battles. There will also be features from both dance squads – Golden Delight (A&T) and Champagne (SCSU)– and both drum lines – Cold Steel (A&T) and Bong Brothers Inc. (SCSU).

Though no official winner will be determined, the bands will be silently judged based on the crowd’s reaction.

The two bands will also go head-to-head Saturday when the Aggies and the Bulldogs face off in Aggie Stadium.
