Grambling State defeats Alcorn State to win Back to Back SWAC ChampionshipsDecember 4, 2017
The Tuskegee Golden Tigers defeated Fort Valley State 13-6 in the SIAC Championship Game this past weekend in Fort Valley, GA. Despite that and a 9-2 season, Tuskegee was seemingly snubbed by the NCAA DII Playoffs.
The Tigers season included wins over NCAA Division 1 Alabama State and Jackson State (neither of which counts in Division II ranking consideration) and the SIAC Championship but the NCAA’s Division II football playoff committee snubbed Tuskegee as an ‘Earned Access’ team by way of the seeding in the final regional standings.
