Bethune-Cookman, North Carolina A&T headline MEAC TV schedule

The MEAC football schedule is out, and it’s interesting to say the least. Two of the three defending MEAC Co-Champs—Bethune Cookman and North Carolina A&T—will make multiple appearances on national television. The third, North Carolina Central, could make it just once or not at all. 

Bethune-Cookman will be featured in at least five of the nine MEAC broadcasts, starting with their MEAC/SWAC Challenge matchup against Alcorn State and including the Florida classic against rival Florida A&M.

North Carolina A&T, the defending Black College Champs and Celebration Bowl winners, will appear three times: at home against Hampton, at home against Norfolk State the following week and in Daytona Beach when they face Bethune-Cookman.

There is one open game on Nov. 19, which will likely end up being North Carolina A&T at North Carolina Central in Durham.

Here is the full schedule below.
