WSSU notes: St. Aug's coming to Bowman Gray with confidence

WINSTONS-SALEM, North Carolina -- There’s little doubt as to which school had the hardest nonconference schedule in the CIAA this season.

St. Augustine’s, which plays at Winston-Salem State on Saturday, lost to N.C. A&T 62-0 and followed that with a 48-14 loss to Carson-Newman. In their final nonconference game, the Falcons lost 65-7 to N.C. Central.
However, coach Tim Chavous said they needed to play the two money games against N.C. A&T and N.C. Central to help the budget for athletics.

“You have to play those kinds of games and we did that, but I think it prepared us for CIAA play,” said Chavous, whose Falcons are 2-1 in conference play.

The Falcons are coming off a 38-37 double-overtime win over Livingstone, thanks in large part to quarterback D.J. Johnson and wide receiver Sam Boyd. Both were named players of the week in the CIAA for their outstanding games against the Blue Bears.
