I want to start off by showing love to the ECSU Vikings for making it to the playoffs. Only 24 teams in the country made the d2Playoffs and you were one of them.
Not Bloomsburg, Not Slippery Rock, Not Shepherd, Not S. Connecticut, and about 40 other schools I can mentioned that didn't make it to the playoffs. ECSU, though the outcome this weekend was not what you had hoped for, you must hold your head up and use the loss as motivation for next year.
This was a tough
If you were not able to make it to Durham Saturday, you missed a capacity crowd that rivaled a homecoming game x 3. Durham County Stadium was absolutely electric! There were so much tailgating going on you could commit gluttony. It was such a festive atmosphere, we were all family on that afternoon, a CIAA family. The game literally sold out.

As the season winds down, there are several great things going on in the CIAA. Both WSSU and ECSU took care of business and few more Pioneers Bowl contenders seem to have come into the fold. (I'll explain below) Bottom line is, we have 10 weeks down, with one week to go.
WSSU 21 Shaw 14
In one of the toughest games Winston-Salem State has faced all season, the Shaw Bears had the WSSU Rams on the ropes, but the couldn't finish them off, and as the will of a champion
