Not your average game, Norfolk State & Hampton get set for Battle of the Bay

HAMPTON, Virginia -- — It’s the marquee game on the calender for our local MEAC football teams. Norfolk State against Hampton, the Battle of the Bay with bragging rights and more on the line this Saturday at Armstrong Stadium.

“We know the guys from the other side of the water are going to bring it,” Hampton wide receiver T.J. Mixson said. “No matter what the records are you’ve gotta expect to go hard.”

“We know those guys, they know us,” said Norfolk State senior Brandon Walker. “The intensity is definitely gonna be ramped up.”

Norfolk State has struggled this season, but the Spartans have won two of their last three games. Saturday is the Spartans final game of the season, Hampton still has a game next week against Coastal Carolina, so for the Norfolk State seniors, this is their final college football game.

“Why not end the season with a win,” NSU senior quarterback Greg Hankerson said. “I feel like this would be a confident boost for the guys coming back next year.”
