Winston-Salem State and Bethune-Cookman Continue to Top Add's HBCU Sports Report Top Ten Football Polls


Heading into the final weeks of the regular season, the two leaders in the Add's HBCU Sports Report Top Ten polls - Bethune-Cookman and Winston-Salem State -- are holding firm to their top spots.

In Division II, Winston-Salem State defeated sixth-ranked Shaw 28-24 last weekend, but had to come from behind with less than a minute left in the game to do it.  It kept in tact their 17-game CIAA winning streak and their undefeated record in conference play so far this year. 

In the FCS poll, Tennessee State has company in the second place ranking this week.  TSU was blown out for a second week in a row, this time to another Ohio Valley Conference and national FCS ranked team, Eastern Kentucky.   The Tigers are holding on to their spot, but only on the strength of their schedule and having easily defeated fellow No. 2 HBCU team, Jackson State who was idle this past weekend.
