BCU and JSU prepare for season opener in MEAC/SWAC Challenge

For the second consecutive year, the Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) season will kick off in Atlanta.  

All eyes will be on Georgia State Stadium on Sept. 1 as representatives from the Mid-Eastern Conference and the Southwestern Conference compete in the 15th annual MEAC/SWAC Challenge.  

The MEAC has won nine of the 14 games played. Last year, Prairie View A&M defeated North Carolina Central to open the 2018 season.  

This season, an old rivalry is renewed as the Bethune-Cookman Wildcats square off against the Jackson State Tigers. The schools will meet for the first time since 1989. The Tigers hold a 4-2 series lead.  

Bethune-Cookman is making its fourth appearance in the MEAC/SWAC Challenge. This is Jackson State’s first appearance since 2008.
