The Mid Eastern Athletic Conference regularly produces the type of explosive playmakers that keep fans of college football coming back for more. There are not many things that provide more excitement than watching great throws and crushing tackles by MEAC players during hotly contested football games. The conference is comprised of historically black colleges located in the Mid Atlantic and Southeastern parts of the United States. The MEAC joins the SWAC as the two conferences comprised completely of HBCUs. The champions of the two conferences meet at the end of each season to compete in the Celebration Bowl. North Carolina AT&T has claimed the MEAC Championship and won the Celebration Bowl each of the last two seasons. The Aggies defeated the Grambling State Tigers 21-14 at the end of the 2017 season and then returned to the game to beat the Alcorn State Braves 24-22 in 2018.

What players will I see when I attend a MEAC football game?
There are enough talented players in the MEAC to guarantee one of the most exciting football seasons the conference has enjoyed in years. Caylin Newton, the quarterback of Howard University, enters his junior year as the preseason offensive player of the year for the conference. The Atlanta native earned the same honor following the 2018 regular season. On the defensive side of the football, Brian Cavicante is the preseason choice for player of the year following a season where he recorded 89 tackles.
Who are some of the all-time great players to play in the MEAC?
A number of MEAC football players have gone on to accomplish great things in the NFL. Bob Hayes played football and ran track while attending Florida A&M University. He represented his country in the Olympics before playing for the NFL's Dallas Cowboys and delivering a hall of fame career. Elvin Bethea played defensive line for North Carolina A&T before being drafted by the Houston Oilers of the NFL. He is the first alumn from the school to make it to the NFL Hall of Fame. Larry Little is another Hall of Famer who played his college ball in the MEAC and former standout Justin Durant currently plays linebacker for the Dallas Cowboys.
What coaches will lead MEAC teams when I attend a game?
There are a number of young and energetic coaches who have taken over at the helm of MEAC football teams in recent years. Most onlookers were surprised a year ago when North Carolina AT&T coach Rod Broadway stepped down after leading his team to an undefeated season. He was replaced by Sam Watson who was already part of the program as defensive coordinator. Granville Eastman was also promoted from defensive coordinator to become the head coach of North Carolina Central a year ago. In total, five of the teams in the conference began the season with a new coach before the 2018 season. The excitement is expected to increase now that their teams have had a full year to digest any changes in the game plans implemented by the new coaches.Back to Top
