North Carolina A&T maintained its first place position but a scheduling adjustment helped push Winston-Salem State to the top in week 11 of the HSRN Football Polls.

A&T, Grambling, N.C. Central, Southern and Tennessee State stayed firm in the top five positions in the FCS Poll.  Florida A&M made its first appearance after edging Morgan State, 22-21.  The Rattlers have won three of their last four games and head into a Florida Classic showdown against Bethune-Cookman this weekend.

After missing the SIAC Championship game, Tuskegee needed a tenth regular season contest in order to qualify for the NCAA Division II playoffs.  The Golden Tigers scheduled Virginia State to an afternoon affair and promptly lost to the Trojans, 45-35.  Meanwhile, Winston Salem State knocked off Bowie State to capture its second straight CIAA Title and move into first place in the Division II/NAIA Poll.

VSU’s win pushed the Trojans into second position while Tuskegee dropped to third. Bowie State and Chowan round out the top five.  

Despite the loss, Tuskegee received a berth in the Division II Playoffs, joining WSSU as the only HBCU representatives in the Division II postseason.
