Dwight Floyd Game Report

Game Report

MEAC and SWAC football is still exciting. Undefeated North Carolina A&T is ranked 12th in the FCS Coaches Poll while 4 and 1 Grambling is ranked 19th. Prairie View A&M also received votes in the poll. Last week North Carolina A&T won against a South Carolina State team that is still looking for a big win; and Prairie View A&M had a dominating win against Jackson State. Clark Atlanta played a respectable game against Grambling, scoring 20 points. One would have expected a better showing by Grambling. There were no surprises in week 5, but week 6 will be the beginning of separation between the top teams in each conference, the middle of the field teams, and the teams that will be fighting to not finish last. Everyone is still wondering just how good a team Howard is and this week we may find out when host North Carolina Central. Central is struggling a bit on offense with a freshman starting at quarterback for the injured starter. As they say in the street, this is a “put up or shut up” game for Prairie View A&M when they host Grambling. They appear to have the potential to spoil Grambling’s season.
