The Magnolia Gridiron All-Star Classic was an annual post-season college football all-star game held in December. The game was organized by Darry Alton, who previously helped found the Las Vegas All-American Classic, in view of the discontinuation of the Blue-Gray Football Classic and the Gridiron Classic, in order to provide players from lesser-known and -televised schools with a chance to impress NFL scouts.

The game was held at Mississippi Veterans Memorial Stadium in Jackson, Mississippi. It matched a team composed primarily of players from Division I-A schools not participating in or having already participated in end-of-season bowl games, and from certain NAIA schools, against a "white team", composed of players from Division I-AA, Division II, and Division III schools. Prior to the game, players take place in team practices and combines open to college and professional scouts.
