At this time last year I had one of those feelings. You know, one of those wacky college football upset is in the air feelings.
If I were a smarter man, I would have followed my intuition, booked a flight to Vegas and
gambled on urrrr made a couple of short-term investments favoring the underdogs in last year’s Week 6 MEAC matchups . But instead of cashing in on my premonition, all I did was create a 2011 Week 6 Upset Alert Poll so all the know-it-alls could say “I told you so”.
Turns out both Bethune-Cookman and Florida A&M were upset by North Carolina A&T and Howard respectively that week. The losses by both squads eliminated them from the MEAC conference title race as well as FCS playoff consideration. Conference power South Carolina State also struggled to defeat MEAC upstart North Carolina Central in Week 6 of last season. Eventual conference champion Norfolk State took care of business against Delaware State.
The same pairing of teams faceoff this weekend in the first full weekend of MEAC conference games. So tell us, which one of the 4 MEAC preseason favorites is most likely to fall this Saturday?
