Mr. McBorrough represents what is possible when you maximize your opportunities and take advantage of all the resources at ‘the national treasure’ that is Morgan State University."

N.C. Central (0-1) vs. Towson (0-1)
The Eagles lost more than just a game against Austin Peay last weekend.
First reported by News & Observer reporter Jonas Pope, redshirt senior quarterback Chancey Caldwell announced via Instagram the following night after the game that he would enter the transfer portal.
Caldwell, the presumed starter this season, lost the role to redshirt junior Micah Zanders. But Zanders was ineffective against Austin Peay, completing 50% of his passes for 61 yards and zero touchdowns. Caldwell entered the game in the second quarter and was 8 of 23 for 78 yards and one TD in the 41-10 loss.
Coach Trei Oliver said on Tuesday’s MEAC teleconference that Caldwell’s departure wasn’t “going to have an effect on the team going forward.”
When pushed for more information, Oliver replied: “Chauncey is no longer part of the team. Let’s focus on the guys that are still on the team.”
NCCU has three additional quarterbacks on the roster: freshman Davius Richard, sophomore Travis Griffin and redshirt junior Eddie Yearby.
Caldwell is the second QB to leave the Eagles program. Graduate QB Naiil Ramadan transferred to Winston-Salem State earlier this year for his final season of eligibility.
The Eagles travel to nationally ranked Towson University this weekend. The Tigers have won the previous two meetings.
NCCU completes its three-game road trip next Saturday at Gardner-Webb.
St. Augustine’s (0-0) vs. Lenoir-Rhyne (0-0)
Coach Tim Chavous said he wanted a tough nonconference schedule, and he got it.
The Falcons open at Lenoir-Rhyne, a first-time meeting between the two teams. Next week is a trip to Mars Hill to take on the Mountain Lions before their home opener against Virginia State.
SAU hasn’t won its season opener since a 28-10 victory over Wingate on September 1, 2012. It was Wingate’s first-ever loss against a CIAA team.
Shaw (0-0) vs. Campbell (0-0)
The Bears are seeking their first win against the Camels. Shaw was shut out last season 42-0.
The Bears are riding a high from last season after winning four of their last five games.
Shaw has set a theme for all its home games:
- Youth Day: September 14 vs. Bowie State
- Faculty & Staff Appreciation: September 28 vs. Edward Waters
- Homecoming: October 19 vs. Livingstone
- Raleigh Classic: November 9 vs. St. Aug’s
