Celebration Bowl: ‘When the season began, this is where we wanted to end up’

North Carolina A&T and Alcorn State meet for the second straight year

North Carolina A&T, the champion of the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference, will enter Saturday’s Celebration Bowl looking to win its third straight title.

Alcorn State, the Southwestern Athletic Conference (SWAC) champion, makes its second straight visit, again competing against N.C. A&T, to the Celebration Bowl.

It’s the biggest game of the season for the N.C. A&T Aggies and the Alcorn Braves. As the championship game at Mercedes-Benz Stadium approaches, players and coaches from both teams discuss what’s at stake in Saturday’s matchup as the SWAC seeks its first win since Grambling’s victory over North Carolina Central in 2016.
