Tennessee State and Winston Salem State Top the HBCU Football Polls

Historically black college and university football experts in four of the five most respected weekly HBCU football polls have named Tennessee State University as the nation's top HBCU football team this week.
     Only one, the Black College Sports Page, ranked the Nashville school outside of the top spot.  In their poll, 4-0 TSU was ranked second to Winston Salem State University, who is also undefeated at 4-0 so far this season.  Undefeated Alabama A&M is ranked either No. 2 or 3 in each of the polls.
      In the polls that split NCAA Division I and Division II teams, D-II Winston Salem State leads their national polls while TSU tops the Division I polls.
       Tennessee State hosts Arkansas-Pine Bluff in their homecoming game Saturday afternoon while Winston Salem State visits Bowie State in Maryland.
        Here are the links to the five HBCU polls:
