Hartly, DE – North Carolina A&T’s victory in the Air Force Reserve Celebration Bowl and Tuskegee’s deep run in the Division II Playoffs have vaulted the Aggies and Golden Tigers to the top spots in the final 2015 HSRN Football Polls.  The MEAC co-champion Aggies defeated SWAC champion Alcorn State, 41-34, before an announced crowd of 35,528 in the Georgia Dome to cap off a 10-2 season.
