By Kevin Kelley -

The North Carolina A&T Aggies and the Norfolk State Spartans have scheduled a four-game home-and-home football series, both schools announced today.

North Carolina A&T and Norfolk State will meet in a pair of home-and-home series. Details of the four matchups are listed below:

  • Nov. 5, 2022 – at North Carolina A&T
  • Sept. 30, 2023 – at Norfolk State
  • Sept. 19, 2026 – at North Carolina A&T
  • Sept. 18, 2027 – at Norfolk State

“Norfolk State and North Carolina A&T are two of the finest institutions in America,” North Carolina A&T head coach Sam Washington said. “Being proud historically Black universities, traditional rivals, and with coach Odums now serving as their head coach adds to the excitement of entering into a football series with the Green & Gold. I have known coach Odums since he was a college football player, and I have seen him become one of the best coaches on the FCS level. It will be a challenge facing his program each year, but we are looking forward to it.”

North Carolina A&T and Norfolk State have met 43 times on the gridiron dating back to 1962. Both schools were members of the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC) from 1999 through 2019. Norfolk is still in the MEAC, but North Carolina A&T is officially moving to the Big South Conference on July 1.

“We look forward to playing North Carolina A&T and continuing this great HBCU rivalry,” first-year NSU head coach Dawson Odums said. “They have an outstanding program and had tremendous success in the MEAC. Under coach Sam Washington’s leadership, I know they will continue to be successful in the Big South. Our institution, alumni and the NSU community are looking forward to reuniting with the Aggies.”
