North Carolina A&T is back in the top 10 as it preps for a big-time matchup this week.
A&T moved into the no. 10 spot in the FCS Coaches Poll two weeks after taking a dive down to no. 12 following an upset against then-winless Morgan State.

A&T has won back-to-back games since that slip up, beating South Carolina State at home and Delaware State 34-6 on the road on Saturday. Quarterback Lamar Raynar appears to have broken out of his slump, throwing for five touchdowns and running for two more in the two contests.
It will look to keep the win streak going on Saturday against a Florida A&M team that is hot itself, winning three straight games heading into Week Seven. FAMU is 3-0 for the first time since 2001, when A&T came up with a 55-23 win in Greensboro on Oct. 13.
The two teams will meet in BB&T stadium on Oct. 13.
