Winston-Salem State put together a solid all-around game to win its second CIAA Championship in a row and fourth in six seasons on Saturday, beating Bowie State 43-33 in Salem, VA.
WSSU picked off CIAA Offensive Player of The Year Amir Hall four times, and got a big game from quarterback Rod Tinsley Jr. and Kerrion Moore on offense to beat BSU in the title game for the second straight year.
Tinsley threw three touchdown passes and Moore rushed for 177 yards and a touchdown en route to winning MVP honors. Tyrell Flemming picked off three of Hall’s passes.
WSSU improved to 9-2 on the season and will wait to see if it can get a bid to the NCAA Division II playoffs.
