The CIAA football championship game lineup is now set. Bowie State clinched the CIAA North division title for the third time in four years, earning a matchup with Fayetteville State in Salem, VA on Nov. 10.
BSU earned the title with a dominating performance against Elizabeth City State. BSU won 49-7 as Amir Hall broke a career CIAA record. He finished the game with 98 career touchdown passes, breaking the record of 96 set by Winston-Salem State quarterback Kam Smith.
Hall went 24-for-39 passing with 336 and four touchdowns in the win.
Fayetteville State, meanwhile, found itself on the short end of a 51-21 score to Winston-Salem State. FSU had already clinched the CIAA South title, however, a win would have helped its Divsion II playoff chances.
Bowie State will look to claim its first-ever CIAA title in Salem. BSU beat WSSU in the 1989 title game but the title was strippeed away due to ineligible players. FSU and Bowie State have met twice previously in the CIAA championship game, first in 2003 and then again in 2009, with FSU winning both.
