Southern Heritage Classic refunds available, but some choose, urge others to donate funds

After the 29th annual Southern Heritage Classic between Jackson State University and Tennessee State University was canceled due to inclement weather, refunds are being made available; however, fans are urged to donate the cost of the tickets to the schools.

Classic officials, TSU and JSU apologized to fans for any inconvenience this may have caused.

This week only, JSU is offering refunds as follows:
