The Battle of the Bay [1] between the Hampton Pirates and the Norfolk State State Spartans is a yearly rivalry match-up in football between two HBCUs in the state of Virginia. Private Hampton University and public Norfolk State University are both located in the Hampton Roads region of coastal Virginia. The two schools are located, respectively, in Hampton, Virginia and Norfolk, Virginia, across the James River from each other. As the name of the rivalry suggests, the James River empties into the Chesapeake Bay just downstream.

Hampton and Norfolk State are both members of the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference in the FCS. The football series began in 1963 and has been played a total of 53 times as of 2015.
