Changes coming to college throwball start date, “November Classic”

Following the upcoming season, college throwball’s start date will be moved back a week. Instead of a Monday October 31, 2022 start date next season, it will begin on Monday November 7, 2022. If Halloween is not on a Monday, the season will begin the second Monday of November every year.

For TN’s primetime opening-season invitational, that will go by the “TN November Classic” in its opening event, changes are coming. For starters, following the 2021-2022 season, the name of the event will be the “TN Titleholder Classic” from now on. If you forgot, dominant teams of the 2010s Arkansas, Little Rock, Michigan State, and North Carolina will play at the event every year through the 2029-2030 season. They rotate who they match up against every season, giving the event a reason to watch every year. With college throwball’s updated start date, here are the new dates and match ups for every “TN Titleholder Classic” following the 2021-2022 season after it will be confirmed at the upcoming 2021 TN Fall Meetings in October:
