NCCU Football Boasts Highest Winning Percentage among North Carolina HBCUs

DID YOU KNOW? Since 1945, the North Carolina Central University football program has the highest winning percentage among Historically Black Colleges and Universities in the state of North Carolina.

Since the end of World War II, the Eagles have won 57.2 percent of their 646 games with an overall record of 360 wins, 267 losses and 19 ties.

The other in-state HBCU football programs with the next highest winning percentages happen to be NCCU’s two biggest rivals, Winston-Salem State and North Carolina A&T.

The WSSU Rams have won 55.0 percent of their contests, while the NCA&T Aggies have a winning percentage of 54.1 percent.

As part of North Carolina Central University's Centennial celebration, the NCCU Department of Athletics will post sports history facts from the institution's first 100 years to its official web site every week during the year-long observance.
