When it comes to HBCU football at the Division II level, Winston-Salem State and Tuskegee have consistently been at the top over the past two seasons. Fans of the two programs will get the chance to see this year’s version of the game Sept. 19 on ESPN3 as it will be the Division II Game of The Week.

Tuskegee (24-13) claimed the SIAC Title and made its second-consecutive playoff appearance in 2014 while WSSU (9-2) won its fourth-straight CIAA Southern Division title before losing to Virginia State in the CIAA Championship Game.
Both teams were picked to win their conference’s during last month’s CIAA and SIAC Media Days.
