South Carolina State is looking to continue the defense of its 2021 Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC) title this Saturday, when the Bulldogs head to Baltimore, Md., to take on Morgan State. North Carolina Central will also be on the road again, heading north to face Delaware State for the Hornets’ Homecoming.

Here’s a look at this week’s games.

South Carolina State holds the top spot in the MEAC after a nail-biting 26-24 victory over North Carolina Central this past Saturday. Wide receiver Shaquan Davis accumulated six receptions for 116 yards (his most extended play was for 35 yards) and two touchdowns, helping the Bulldogs end the day with 386 yards of total offense. However, Morgan State is on the hunt for its first conference victory and looking for its first win over the Bulldogs since 2009. South Carolina State leads the all-time series 34-6-1, having won 13 of the last 14 meetings between the two teams. Morgan State’s last win over the Bulldogs came in 2014, 24-21, in a season where five MEAC programs shared the conference title.

North Carolina Central will be playing its third conference game of the 2022 season at Alumni Stadium this weekend against Delaware State. Both teams are looking to bounce back after losses last week; the Eagles fell short to South Carolina State in a 24-26 loss, while the Hornets also moved down the ranks after a 35-17 loss to Howard. The Hornets will be looking to turn things around in their first conference home game of the 2022 season as they celebrate Homecoming. Last year, the Eagles pulled out a late victory in overtime, defeating the Hornets 34-28. North Carolina Central leads the series 20-7 (3-2 in Alumni Stadium).

Howard is looking to continue climbing the MEAC standings this weekend at William “Dick” Price Stadium against a Norfolk State team coming off a bye week. Last weekend, the Bison defeated Delaware State 35-17, moving them up to a tie for first in the MEAC, and head coach Larry Scott’s group plans to use that momentum to end a three-game losing streak against the Spartans. Howard leads the all-time series 18-9, even though the Spartans escaped Washington, D.C., with a 45-31 victory last season. The Bison last defeated the Spartans in 2017 (28-24 in Washington, D.C.).
