The 90th gridiron meeting between rivals North Carolina Central University and North Carolina A&T State University has been selected by the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC) to air on ESPN3 on Saturday, Nov. 17 in Durham, N.C. at 2 p.m. and will re-air on ESPNU that evening.

All games on an ESPN network are available through WatchESPN, accessible on computers, smartphones, tablets and streaming devices to fans who receive their video subscription from an affiliated provider.


The highly-anticipated Eagle-Aggie rivalry contest will once again feature a pair of teams that have shared or won the past four MEAC Football Championships outright. Both teams have participated in the Air Force Reserve Celebration Bowl and are once again in the mix for the 2018 MEAC Football Championship hunt. North Carolina A&T State is currently ranked 14th in the latest STATS FCS and 13th in the FCS Coaches polls while North Carolina Central leads the MEAC in several statistical categories while also boasting an 11-3 record in the month of November since 2014.

The Eagles have won three of the last four match-ups, but the Aggies triumphed by a score of 24-10 last season.

This marks the third consecutive season the game will be televised on an ESPN network.
