    FIRST UP: Howard University defeats defending MEAC champs Norfolk State 37- 36 in overtime!!!

    That’s right HU, your Bison looked like the Buffalo Soldiers of the old US Army who took on missions as underdogs and excelled in the days of the old west!

    The Red, White and Blue lead by junior QB Greg McGhee (who ran for 73 yards and threw for 46) built a 23 to nothing lead on the Spartans in Norfolk at Dick Price Stadium. What?!  NSU QB Nico Flores found his rhythm in the second half passing for a career high 387 helping the Spartans tie the game in regulation. Now here’s where the game gets better . Both teams scored touchdowns in the overtime; the Bison first followed by a well-executed extra point (HU 37, NSU30). Norfolk State scored on their possession, but the the Bison’s own Julien David blocked Norfolk State kicker Everett Goldberg’s extra point attempt giving HU the upset victory! Stick your chest out Bison Family!

    Meanwhile , The woes of the Southern University football program (0-2) continue , first the Jags lose their home opener to Mississippi Valley State 6-0 on national television (ESPNU) . Then the Jags players find out that Head Coach Stump Mitchell (Former Washington Redskin) was fired. Mitchells’ record in just over 2 years at Southern was 6 wins and 18 losses. Good luck Jags as you move on this season! Oh by the way, Jags’ arch rival Grambling State is not doing much better. Head coach Doug Williams (former Washington Redskin and Superbowl MVP ) and his Tigers were beaten by the Hornets of Alabama State 19 to 18 . Grambling state is the defending SWAC Conference Champs and now start the conference season 0-2. Go Hornets!!!

    Closer to Baltimore , the Bulldogs of Bowie State found themselves down 17 to nothing and scored 24 unanswered points taking a bite out of Fairmont State winning 24 to 17 in overtime (behold the Black and Gold)! Morgan State took to the road again traveling to Ohio and came up short this time to Akron 66 to 6. Speaking of Ohio, Defending National Black College Champs Winston-Salem State destroyed Morehouse in the second annual Cleveland Classic 55 to 21. Staying in Ohio, Central State beat up on Urbana 28 to 22 and Delaware State losses to Big East power Cincinnati 23 to 7, in Cincinnati (not bad DSU…..you made your Hornet family proud!)
