North Carolina A&T came into the game in first place after completing a 12-0 home schedule, its first undefeated home season since 1987-88, and in search of its first outright MEAC regular season title since the 1991-92 season. Instead the Aggies were knocked into third place with the loss, a game behind Bethune-Cookman and a half-game behind Hampton.
The Aggies now travel to Daytona Beach to face the Wildcats Monday.
