“Over the season, they were judged the best in all categories”
The last ESPN/The Undefeated HBCU Band Rankings of the season have Bethune-Cookman and Miles as the top two bands in the Division I and Division II rankings.
Congratulations to the bands and their schools for the hard work, dedication, precision and music that they’ve given us this season.
The final judging was done by all 10 judges, each of whom is a current or former band director with roots at historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs). The previous judging this season was done by two panels, with five judges each, evaluating the Division I bands, from the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC) and Southwestern Athletic Conference (SWAC) and independents, and five for Division II, for the Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association and Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference.
