            In a key Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference Western Division matchup, Tuskegee shut out Stillman 16-0 on Thursday night.
            Tuskegee’ (5-1, 4-0) owned the first half as William Buford picked off a Stillman pass and returned for a touchdown and the SIAC’s leading rusher, Derrick Washington, had a 12-yard touchdown run.  Tuskegee added a field goal to close out the half.
            The Stillman offense got it together in the second half, but couldn’t cash in on red zone opportunities.  Twice they got inside the Tuskegee 20 yard line, but came up empty both times.  One was stymied by a Jamar Hornsby interception of a Joshua Straughan pass in the end zone.
            The win gives Tuskegee a leg up in a close division race.  They host Kentucky State on Oct. 18 whil  Stillman (4-3, 3-1) hosts Fort Valley State that same day.
 Tennessee State, Alabama A&M and Winston Salem State Continue to Top HBCU Polls 

Tennessee State continues to top the black college football polls as Alabama A&M and Winston Salem State continue to follow close behind.
     All three teams are 6-0 and in the midst of dream seasons.  (Winston Salem State is a Division II team and is ranked first in D-II polls or third in polls for all HBCU teams).  TSU has hit the thick of the Ohio Valley Conference season and has knocked off one ranked Football Championship Series team (#16 Eastern Kentucky) and faces another top FCS team in Southeast Missouri this week.  Alabama A&M has plowed through the Southwestern Athletic Conference so far but face an improving Alcorn State team Saturday.   Winston Salem State faces a feisty St. Augustine's team that is 4-2 and looking to knock off a contender.
