With another week of football in the books, it’s time to look at where HBCUs are polling nationally.

While it was a big deal in the MEAC and in HBCU football in general, NC A&T’s 24-21 victory over Appalachian State was not enough to launch it into the top 25 in either The Sporting News or The Sports Network’s FCS Top 25. Bethune Cookman remains the only HBCU in either poll, though A&T did receive 81 votes in the Sports Network poll.

At the Division II level, both Winston-Salem State and Tuskgee remain in the HBCU representatives in the American Football Coaches Association poll. Winston-Salem State dropped fifteen slots, from no. 5 to no. 20, after losing its opener to no. 23 UNC-Pembroke. Tuskegee jumped five spots to no. 19 after its 23-7 over Division I Alabama A&M.
