NC A&T & Grambling Hold Firm, Tuskegee Survives Upset To Stay On Top in Week 8 of HSRN Polls
HARTLY, Delaware – North Carolina A&T and Grambling State remained on top and Tuskegee survived a homecoming upset to stay in first place in this week’s HSRN Football Polls.
N. C. A&T and Grambling have been ranked #1 and #2 for most of the season in the HSRN FCS Poll. Tuskegee University fell from the undefeated with a heartbreaking 10-9 loss to Kentucky State but still held on to the top position in the Division II/NAIA Poll.
The top eight positions in the Division I FCS poll remained the same from last week with Jackson State and Hampton rounding out the top 10.
In Division II/NAIA, despite a weekend of upsets, Tuskegee’s Golden Tigers held on to the top spot by just one point over Winston-Salem State. Upset losses by Bowie State and Chowan caused positions to shuffle in the poll.
Virginia State and Virginia Union moved up while Bowie State fell to #5. Chowan joined four SIAC teams led by Albany State to round out the top 10.
