Tennessee State Reclaims Top Spot in ADD'S HBCU SPORTS REPORT FCS Top Ten Poll; CIAA Top Three Teams Keep League On Top of Division II Poll

Virginia Union less than a second left to defeat Johnson C. Smith on this play

The top feeders in this week's ADD'S HBCU SPORTS REPORT Division II/FCS Football Top Ten polls didn't change much from last week. But a number of close, last minute games last weekend gave a jolt to both Top Ten lists this past week.

Third-ranked Virginia Union needed a last second touchdown to hold off Johnson C. Smith in Division II while fourth-ranked Fort Valley State needed a field goal on the game's final play to defeat Benedict.

In FCS HBCU football, Tennessee State reclaimed the top spot in the FCS poll after beating Florida A&M 27-7 in a game where the nation's fourth-ranked defense scored two touchdowns. But Bethune-Cookman, last week's co-number one team, is a VERY close second after averting a last second loss in defeating Division II Florida Tech 34-33.

The numbers three and four teams flipped-flopped after Alabama State handled Texas Southern 38-3 Saturday.  Eighth-ranked Jackson State needed overtime to defeat Arkansas-Pine Bluff.
