2018 Football

A&T takes solid, but not huge dip in polls after loss

North Carolina A&T is unbeaten any more, but it is still among the top 15 programs in the FCS.

A&T dropped eight spots in the STATS poll following its 16-13 loss to Morgan State on Saturday. It took a slightly larger drop in the FCS Coaches poll, dropping nine spots to 13th in the nation.

The lost to Morgan State ended a 15-game winning streak dating to the start of the 2017 football season. A&T had not lost since back-to-back losses to close the 2018 season, including a loss to Richmond in the FCS playoffs.

A&T won’t have much time to lick its wounds, however, as it hosts rival South Carolina State on Thursday night.

No other HBCU made the top 25 in either the FCS or Division II after Week Four. Tennessee State and Prairie View received votes in the STATS poll while Bowie State received a vote in the D2 AFCA Coaches poll.
