MEAC-SWAC: There Is No Question

Dwight Floyd Game Report

Game Report

After last week’s showing, it is clear that there are two dominant teams among the SWAC and MEAC, namely the Grambling State Tigers and the North Carolina State A&T Aggies. Hampton and Norfolk share the lead in the MEAC conference and will play each other on Saturday. It will have the feel of a bowl game or classic. Alabama State and Texas Southern may be the game of the weak as one of them will gain their first win of the season. The South Carolina State at Bethune Cookman game will be most interesting as they both desperately seek a win. Jackson State, Alabama A&M, and Arkansas Pine Bluff will all be on the hot seat this Saturday should they lose to teams they should beat. The Prairie View at Alcorn game will set a marker for the next best team in the SWAC. Either Morgan State or Savannah State will show that they are better than their record indicates and Howard (over Delaware) and North Carolina A&T (over FAMU) will strive to not have a let down.
