The tournament, which will take place on the eve of the Two Rivers Classic, will be held at the Baywood Golf Club in Fayetteville, NC. The football classic has been an instant rivalry between the University of North Carolina at Pembroke and Fayetteville State University.

The Two Rivers Classic is entering its fifth edition as the rivalry blossoms between the two Division II football programs. On September 14, 2013, UNC Pembroke and Fayetteville State will meet on the gridiron for rights over the Two Rivers Classic Cup.
With the two institutions just 47 miles apart and adjacent to their respective tributaries - The Cape Fear River in Cumberland County and the Lumber River in Robeson County - the Two Rivers Classic has given the area already rich in athletic and academic tradition an opportunity to come together and compete at the highest level.
Fayetteville State University is the second-oldest public institution in North Carolina. A member of the University of North Carolina System, FSU has nearly 6,000 students and offers degrees in more than 60 undergraduate and graduate degree programs.
