HBCU Football Season Predictions from HBCU-PSMA

HBCU-PSMA voted on the predicted orders of finish in HBCU football for the 2022 season.

HBCU-Pro Sports Media Association members voted on the predicted orders of finish for the HBCU football programs in their respective conferences.   As member of the organization, I based my vote on last season's results, head coaches, staff, coaching changing, recruits and transfers, and personal interviews and research of the teams.

Interesting tidbits from the voting.  

  1. Members believed Jackson State or Florida A&M would take home the Celebration Bowl trophy this season over South Carolina State.
  2. Bowie is expected to return as CIAA champions although the Bulldogs lost Coach Damon Wilson to Morgan State.
  3. Alcorn State would rebound and claim the SWAC West title over Southern.  The quarterback position is still unsettled at both schools.
  4. Albany State to become SIAC champions, but where are my Morehouse Tigers?
