Our top five HBCU halftime shows from Week 3 are made up of performances from bands that we see often and not so often.

The shows include a special high school appearance, a tribute to the victims of Hurricane Irma, and a particular halftime performance that, for many, may go down as one of the biggest “diss” performances of the year towards a rival school.
