After defeating Alcorn State in the inaugural Air Force Reserve Celebration Bowl, North Carolina A&T tops the HBCU Sports Ultimate Football Poll.
After starting the season ranked preseason No. 2, N.C. A&T finished the regular season 9-2 overall and 7-1 in conference play. The Aggies earned a share of the MEAC championship and berth in last Saturday’s Celebration Bowl, where they beat defending SBN Sports Black College Football National Champion Alcorn State 41-34.

WHAT TO DO?
For the sake of fantasy booking, let’s take Morgan State, Hampton/Norfolk State, North Carolina Central, North Carolina A&T, Bethune-Cookman and Florida A&M out of the MEAC. Secondly, let’s take Prairie View/Texas Southern, Grambling State, Southern, Jackson State and Alabama State out of the SWAC. The third step would be to add Tennessee State. If Tennessee State balks initially, then bring Alabama A&M into the fold.
Those 12 schools have long-established rivalries, along with playing in the majority of the larger HBCU classic games. The schools also feature some of the most loyal and rabid fan bases in FCS. However, there’s one more thing that ties the dozen together: the ability to draw crowds in their home markets and elsewhere. It is that ability that may bring these schools together to pool resources for what some might think is a matter of survival.
The 12-team structure allows for two six-team divisions, which would help defray travel costs. The conference could be divided into eastern and western divisions as follows:
EAST DIVISION WEST DIVISION
Bethune-Cookman Alabama A&M or Tennessee State
Hampton or Norfolk State Alabama State
Morgan State Grambling State
North Carolina Central Jackson State
North Carolina A&T Prairie View or Texas Southern
Florida A&M Southern

1 Kentucky 141.95 29-0 Kentucky throttled Arkansas at home on Saturday in what appeared to be its biggest hurdle in the way of an unbeaten regular season.
2 Gonzaga 127.85 29-2 The Bulldogs might have lost out on a No. 1 seed with a home loss to BYU. But the Zags' national title chances remain unchanged.
3 Virginia 118.20 28-1 It's truly remarkable what Virginia has done this year. The Cavs wrapped up the ACC crown on Monday with its nation-best 49.9 opp. ppg.
4 Arizona 110.85 26-3 Arizona moves up a spot with a win at Utah on Saturday, completing the season sweep of the Utes.
5 Villanova 107.50 27-2 Nova asserted its dominance in a blowout of Providence on Tuesday. All that's left is a trip to Creighton and a home tip with St. John's.
6 Wichita St. 103.75 27-3 Maybe we wrote off the Shockers in the MVC too soon? Wichita State put on a clinic Saturday with its swift handling of UNI in the rematch.
7 Wisconsin 103.45 26-3 Wisconsin might be the best team in the Big Ten, but the Badgers found out Maryland is no joke with its loss at the Terps on Tuesday,
8 Duke 100.25 26-3 Duke pushed its win streak to nine games. It is fourth in the nation in scoring (80.7 ppg) and third in shooting (50.1 percent).
9 Stephen F. Austin 96.50 25-4 An under-the-radar game worth watching this week? The Lumberjacks and Sam Houston State on Saturday for first place in the Southland.
10 Northern Iowa 96.05 27-3 Don't let UNI's recent loss at Wichita State fog your memory of its triumph vs. the Shockers earlier this season. The Panthers are legit.
11 Murray St. 94.55 26-4 The Racers finished up the regular season and now set their sights on the Ohio Valley tournament with its first game coming on Friday.
12 Notre Dame 91.55 24-5 The numbers have finally agreed with what all of us already knew: Duke is a better team than Notre Dame.
13 Utah 91.35 22-6 The Utes might not be on Arizona's level, but they're still ninth in shooting percentage (48. and eighth in scoring defense (55..
14 North Carolina Central 91.25 23-6 The Eagles have hung around the top 15, but finally made their move. They wrap up the regular season vs. North Carolina A&T on Thursday.
15 Sam Houston St. 88.10 23-6 While a trip to Stephen F. Austin looms, it'll be all for nothing if the Bearkats don't take care of business at Lamar on Thursday.
