NC A&T awarded an at-large bid to FCS Playoffs

North Carolina A&T isn’t headed to Atlanta, but it is heading to Virginia. One day after losing to archrival North Carolina Central in a de facto MEAC Championship Game, A&T has been awarded an at-large bid to the FCS playoffs.

A&T (9-2) will travel to Richmond to take on the Spiders on Nov. 26.

The Aggies will be the lone HBCU representative in the FCS Playoffs and will look to become the first MEAC team to win in the playoffs since the turn of the century.

    Yea MEAC gave up automatic bid when they accepted the invite to go to Celebration Bowl. Otherwise, I believe MEAC woulda got two squads in this season.
