Howard finished the regular season in first place in the MEAC standings, while Norfolk State was two games behind them in third place. Howard has won four games in a row and has held their last two opponents to only 55 points. Norfolk State has lost three of their last six games, including a 20-point loss to Howard. These two teams have pretty even metrics, but I like Howard to win this one. The Bison are playing like the better team right now and will have the confidence after blowing out Norfolk State on March 2nd.
