Fayetteville State escaped the dreaded 0-3 tag with a 21-7 victory over Virginia Union last weekend. Elizabeth City State wasn't as fortunate with a 34-13. ECSU Head Coach Waverly Tillar has guided his team to four Division Championships (2006, 2008, 2011, 2012) and NCAA Playoff Berths in 2006 and 2011. The Vikings are looking to get over the hump while the Broncos are looking to continue with its recent success.
With his team in field goal position, Devonte Hunt shouldered the pressure and avoided a diving Bronco for a 30-yard kick that split the up-rights with triple zeros on the clock. The extended arms of the officials sent the visiting sideline into pandemonium and downhearted the full home crowd with the 29-28 score in favor of Virginia State
