Third year head coach Jay Hopson has established the mind set of winning in Lorman, Mississippi with 4 wins in his first season at the helm.
Then in year two his Braves fought like warriors to a 9 win season and this year
winning the Swac crown and claiming 10 victims (Southern is on that list twice).
Congratulations to the Alcorn State Braves winning the SWAC 2014 Championship joining Morgan State (MEAC) , Virginia State ( CIAA) and Tuskegee (SIAC) as conference champions this season!
(Morgan State shared the MEAC crown with Bethune-Cookman,South Carolina State,NorthCarolina A&T and North Carolina Central, but the Bears got the auto Bid to the FCS Playoffs)
The Impressive win by the Braves over Southern University gets my Vote as the 2014 Black College National Champions!
