Hartly, DE – North Carolina A&T and Tuskegee were nearly unanimous choices tor first place in this week’s HSRN Football Polls.

Celebration Bowl Champion N. C. A&T has been ranked #1 since the beginning of the season in the HSRN FCS Poll. Undefeated Tuskegee University has held on to the top position in the Division II/NAIA Poll for six consecutive weeks.

Positions in the Division I FCS poll remained fairly consistent. Grambling State held on to second place with Tennessee State close behind in third despite suffering their first loss of the season. North Carolina Central jumped over idle Southern into fourth place with the Jaguars rounding out the top five.

In Division II/NAIA, Tuskegee’s Golden Tigers captured all but one of the first place votes of the HSRN pollsters ahead of a strong representation from the CIAA, who took the next four places in the poll.

Bowie State remained in second place ahead of Virginia Union, Virginia State and Winston-Salem State. Lane College returned to the top 10 after falling out a week ago.
