What’s up HBCU alum, students and fans !
So you may ask, “Ki Ki What do you mean by saying the HBCU football season is on fire?” Well, let me tell you the games are exciting! Southern scored at the end of the Atlanta Classic in ATL to beat FAMU 21-14. Lincoln (PA) had to score 55 points and still only beat Johnson C Smith by 2 points (score was 55 to 53 ) and Livingstone upset Virginia Union 23 to 21.
Now if you didn’t know the Blue Bears of Livingstone have not had it easy on the football field going 0-11 in 2010 and 1-9 in 2011! The win over Union is there second in a row this season, go ahead Livingstone making the Blue in your Bear a good thing !
Speaking of Bears! Morgan State took on North Carolina A&T on Thursday night and came out on top 21 to 18! Thanks to Bears quarterback Robert Council connecting on a 32 yard pass with receiver Andrew King for the game winning touchdown. Morgan State standout senior running back Mike Mayhew is burning up the yardage as he gained 102 yards on the day becoming the Bears All-time leading rusher. Oh yeah and speaking of being on fire my girl Fantasia sang (and I do mean Sang) the national anthem to kick off the game !
Meanwhile Saturday in Bowie, Bowie State hosted Winston-Salem State and came up short 35-3 . The Bulldogs unfortunately found out why the Red and Black of Winston-Salem State is considered to be ram tough as Coach Connell Maynors’ Rams held Bowie State to only 246 yards of total offense (The Bulldogs lowest output so far this season). Howard caught fire and hid the water torching the Tigers of Savannah State 56 to 9 and with that win the Bison are now 2-0 in the The MEAC ( I Hear Bob Marley Singing Buffalo Soldiers!!!! Fighting for America! ) Go on Howard holding it down like ya girl Ki Ki Brown! Morgan State and Bowie State you know I got love for you too!
