The two best teams in HBCU football over the last five years meet in Atlanta Saturday to decide a national champion and get an early lead to the claim of team of the decade.

Our HBCU Sports contributors comprised of a stay-at-home father, busy entrepreneur and a marginal college football insider have the task of playing the role of prognosticators to determine a winner on Saturday.

HBCU Sports Editor Kendrick Marshall

Winner: North Carolina A&T

Score: 31-28

Because: The Aggies have simply been the best team all year, and its unblemished record is a reflection of that. North Carolina A&T just has a little bit more depth than Grambling does, which will ultimately decide this one.

HBCU Sports Publisher Kenn Rashad

Winner: Grambling

Score: 38-30

Because: Despite the fact that A&T is solid in all three phases of the game (offense, defense, and special teams), Grambling’s defense is loaded with a bevy of playmakers – including De’arius Christmas, Brandon Varner, Anfernee Mullins and Ja’terious Pouncy – who will genuinely create havoc for the Aggie offense.

HBCU Sports contributor Fred Batiste

Winner: North Carolina A&T

Score: 27-21

Because: I think they’re better up front offensively, traditionally stout defensively and Khris Gardin gives them the advantage on special teams. Veteran squad that won’t beat itself.
