Tennessee State, Tuskegee Top Season's First ADD'S HBCU SPORTS REPORT FCS and Division II Top Ten Polls.


Now that all of the money games in which the small schools play meat for the much larger schools around the country are pretty much over, we can now start to see who really is better than whom in the HBCU football world.

In the first week of this year's ADD'S HBCU SPORTS REPORT FCS and Division II Top Ten HBCU football polls, undefeated Tennessee State and Tuskegee lead the way so far.

Tennessee State (4-0, 1-0 OVC) breezed through the HBCU portion of their schedule and got a late win over Ohio Valley Conference foe Tennessee-Martin Saturday.  But the Tigers are rallying around quarterback Ronald Butler who is replacing O'Shea Ackerman-Carter because of injury for the rest of the season.

They are followed closely by North Carolina A&T (3-1, 2-0 MEAC), who's only loss is to FBS Tulsa but has defeated FBS Kent State, and Grambling (3-1, 3-0 SWAC), a team that nearly pulled off a huge upset when they took FBS Arizona to the wire earlier this season.

In Division II, Tuskegee (5-0, 3-0 SIAC) easily tops the poll as they have some very impressive wins already this season, over FCS Florida A&M, a talented Albany State team and nationally-ranked UNC-Pembroke.

Behind them are four CIAA teams that could very well be tied at this point - Bowie State, Virginia State, Virginia Union and Chowan.
