UNC Pembroke has dominated Fayetteville State in Two Rivers Classic

PEMBROKE, North Carolina -- In some of his first meetings with Fayetteville State alumni after being introduced as the Broncos head football coach, Richard Hayes kept hearing the same message.

Please, beat UNC Pembroke.
"Everybody wants this one," Hayes said.

When UNCP started its football program nearly a decade ago, it made sense to start a series with the region's other Division II program. So in 2009, UNCP and Fayetteville State met for the first Two Rivers Classic.

Since then, the game has been positioned as a rivalry. But the results haven't quite lived up to it.
