Alcorn State and Tuskegee Remain Tops in This Week's ADD'S HBCU SPORTS REPORT FCS/Division II Top Ten Football Polls


Things are starting to be more clear among HBCU schools playing FCS football.

One is Alcorn State, who continues to be ranked No. 1 in this week's ADD'S HBCU SPORTS REPORT FCS Top Ten football poll.   The Braves had an easy time with Arkansas-Pine Bluff, defeating UAPB 61-14.

Head Coach Jay Hopson has the Braves offense clicking, as they've rushed for 1,256 yards so far this year, which is ninth-best in FCS football and they average 6.31 yards per rush, which is second in the nation.  They also rank second nationally with 18 touchdowns this season.

The Braves are followed closely by Bethune-Cookman (4-1), a narrow 28-26 winner at North Carolina Central last weekend, North Carolina A&T, Tennessee State and South Carolina State.

In Division II football, Tuskegee fell to a hot UNC-Pembroke squad, but regains the top spot in this week's poll.

The Golden Tigers (4-1) are closely followed by four CIAA squads, Virginia Union, Chowan, Bowie State and Elizabeth City State in this week's poll.
