GREENSBORO – And the band played on.
N.C. A&T danced past Delaware State 44-3 Saturday, a homecoming victory that came before a crowd so large it’s not clear that everyone got in.
Those that did were packed onto the track surrounding the field. Those that didn’t just watched through the fence along Sullivan Street.
The game was just part of the festivities Saturday. Some got up early to watch the parade. Some waited around to watch the band afterward. But more than 25,000 people packed into and around Aggie Stadium to watch what just might be the best A&T football team in school history.
Now 6-0 for the first time since 1993, the Aggies put away Del State in a two-minute blitz in the first quarter, a remarkable sequence that showed just how good this team is and how good it can yet be.
It happened so fast, the visiting Hornets didn’t know what hit them.
“We’re chasing excellence,” he said. “We’re chasing greatness. It not about just winning. It’s not about just beating people. It’s about chasing excellence and being as good as we can be.”http://www.greensboro.com/sports/college/ed-hardin-a-t-slams-del-state-in--/article_adf06912-aba6-11e7-b2c3-ffe34fa70134.html
