  1. Again nca&t trys to make a name for itself playing nobody until they meet central. These hbcu polls keep them ranked 1 as soon as someone loses.

    • Don’t worry about A&T worry about NCCU that played Shaw and Duke.
      You want beat up Shaw but you get smack down by Duke and then you want
      come on here and said A&T not playing anybody until the play NCCU.
      What NCCU need to do is upgrade their facilities. It high school stadiums in North Carolina that is biggest than NCCU.You played Duke for the last four years and you played Western Michigan and you let your team take a 14 hours bus trip to get beat
      70-0 and you on here talking about A&T, football schedule. NCCU has the worst football stadium in the entire MEAC. You win championships but don’t make any improvement to your stadium.
