Coming off its third-straight MEAC championship and a loss in the Celebration Bowl, NCCU will look finish the deal this year.
Key cogs like Malcolm Bell and Mike Jones may be gone, but time waits for no college football team. With key games versus Duke to open the season and NC A&T to end the regular season, NCCU fans are hoping their team can once again soar to the top of the conference.
2016 record: 9-3
Homecoming: Oct. 28 vs. Delaware State
