I should've been dead, and never kept alive, but God's grace and his mercy were on every side. When it looks like I can't, God says I can and he won't let me fall in the enemy's hand! Welcome back to your HBCU College Football Wrap Up for Week 8 on your Spiritual Sports Segment on a Sunday, alliteration, I love it, on CeeJaySports.com, where I give you your sports twisted spiritually….I’m C.E.E.J.A.Y., Let’s Make It Do What It Do!
The MEAC Conference had it going on yesterday with five games on the Grid Iron as Morgan State and Howard played a tight game as the Bison’s running game proved to be the difference in the one point 21-20 win over the Bears as Terrence LeFall rushed the rock for 134 yards and a score to celebrate their homecoming, Delaware State SHUT OUT and literally smacked North Carolina A&T upside the head 24 – ZERO, 24 – ZILCH, 24 – 0 ZIPPO for their homecoming game as the passing game for the Hornets was in full effect as Nick Elko passed for 245 yards and a TD, while his favorite receiver Travis Tarpley caught the rock for 128 yards and a score, while South Carolina State got the overtime win 27-20 against Florida A&M with 144 ground pounding yards from Jalen Simmons and a score and the Mighty Wildcats of Bethune Cookman literally spanked Norfolk State 48-3 as Quentin Williams had 157 passing yards and 2 TD’s.
Popping halftime HBCU 90’s over to the SWAC Conference and their four games as Prairie View was like Dottie Peoples as they Showed Up and the Show Out for their homecoming with 52 points as they blasted Alcorn State with their 37 points with 251 passing yards from De’Auntre Smiley and count ‘em uno, dos, tres, quarto TD’s, just a little love all the Spanish speaking brothers and sisters out there, Arkansas Pine Bluff wanted to join the over 50 party as they stumped, step on and stymied, alliteration, I Love It, Southern 51-20 as Benjamin Anderson passed for 296 scorching yards and a score, but also ran for 75 yards and a score, while Ladarius Eckwood only caught the ball 3 times, but for 131 burning the trails yards and a score and it was a double overtime homecoming thriller as Jackson State escaped with a 14-7 win over Mississippi with 131 passing yards from Clayton Moore and a score and 60 rushing yards as well with a score.
Now, I purposely left out two scores, one from the MEAC and one from the SWAC ‘cause SOMEBODY STOP THE BUS as Grambling State of the SWAC and Savannah State of the MEAC FINALLY won their first game of the season as both were homecomings for the schools as Grambling crushed Lynchburg 22-7 with 114 passing yards from Frank Rivers and Tyree Hollins had an interception for -13 yards….what, please explain and Savannah State got past Edward Waters 42-35 with 319 passing yards from Antonio Bostick and not one, not two, not even three, but fo’, fo’, fo’ TD’s and 160 receiving yards from Simon Heyward and 3 TD’s.
And juuuuust in case you missed it, Hampton took on surprising North Carolina Central Thursday night and the game was really no match as North Carolina Central pummeled, pasted and pulverized alliteration, you know I Love It, Hampton 37-20 as Geovonie Irvine had 99 receiving yards and a score.
And for a couple few non MEAC/SWAC homecoming games, Elizabeth City State outmuscled Chowan 47-21 for the homecoming win, Winston Salem SHUT OUT and demolished Livingstone 58-0…ouch, and Tuskegee also SHUT OUT and manhandled Kentucky State 37-0 to celebrate their homecoming.
For your Week 8 standings in the MEAC, it’s tight and tied at the top as North Carolina Central and Bethune Cookman are tied for #1 with identical conference and non-conference records and they will duke it out for sole possession next week and Howard is 3rd and in the in the SWAC, Alabama A&M still sits in the King’s Chair at #1, Jackson State moves into 2nd place and Alabama State is 3rd in the East and in the West, Arkansas Pine Bluff is remains #1.
