For the past few seasons Bowie State and Virginia State have been the class of the CIAA North Division and this year is no different. Both teams head into Saturday’s matchup undefeated and a week removed from dominant victories over other CIAA North opponents. A lot is at stake; this game will likely determine the division winner and have CIAA championship implications.
