(STATS) - Make no mistake, North Carolina A&T is the team to beat in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference again this season.
Hardly news, huh? Well, it's not.
But behind the only unbeaten team in the FCS last season, the MEAC is a scramble this season. The usual contenders - Bethune-Cookman and North Carolina Central - are right there again, albeit after heavy senior losses. Plus, Florida A&M and Norfolk State think they can do what Howard did last season, becoming relevant in the conference race again.
