Winston-Salem faces Valdosta State for D-2 title

Posted: Updated:
FLORENCE, Ala. -

Winston-Salem State has a chance to become the first historically black school to win a Division II national championship in football.

Two-time national champion Valdosta State stands in the way in Saturday's game at the University of North Alabama's Braly Municipal Stadium.

The only other HBCU team to make the championship game, Central State of Ohio, lost 41-21 to North Dakota State in 1983.

Winston-Salem (14-0) is also trying to become just the fifth team to go 15-0. The Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association has never had a team make it this far.

Valdosta State is seeking its first title since 2007, David Dean's debut season as head coach.

Valdosta State ranks 10th nationally in total offense. Winston-Salem ranks ninth and is led by second-team All-America quarterback Kameron Smith.
