A&T's Parker on Central game: 'It's just football'

GREENSBORO, North Carolina — A&T football coach Rod Broadway didn't care to spend much time discussing the past.

“If you look back, you can’t move forward, so let’s move forward; let’s focus on this game,” Broadway said this week. “We got our (butts) kicked the last two years. Now we’re trying to move forward and trying to play this game as well as we can this year.”

The same as the past two seasons, A&T will meet N.C. Central on Saturday in Durham with an MEAC championship at stake. The No. 9 Aggies are 7-0 in the league and 9-1 overall, and No. 25 Central is 7-0 and 8-2 going into 88th Aggie-Eagle Classic.

For the past two seasons, the Eagles have played spoiler, upsetting the Aggies 21-14 in Greensboro in 2014 before a 21-16 victory last season. Both times, the Aggies have been denied their first outright MEAC title since 2003.

While Broadway has talked about not dwelling in the past, that’s easier said than done for the Aggies.
