The Trojans of Virginia State University ran through and around the Blue Bears of Livingstone College on Saturday evening en route to a 39-6 season-opening victory at Roger’s Stadium. VSU QB Jarred Battle scored 3 TD’s to lead the Men of Troy, while Kenay Hawks and Corey Young were named CIAA Players of the Week for their outstanding performances. In High Point, NC, the Panthers of Virginia Union University ran into a familiar foe in Winston-Salem State. Although the Rams are returning to the CIAA from Division 1-AA, they remain a potent team, as evidenced by their 47-13 romp over Union in the Furniture City Classic. The Tigers of Saint Paul’s College also opened with a 35-28 road loss at West Virginia Wesleyan.
