Thanksgiving Day and never

the snarling, groping Bulldogs
from A&T College to clinch the

championship, 6-0.
Over 10,000 gridiron fans

The win by the Eagles left

with a 7-1 record. It also gave
Herman Riddick his second
CIAA championship in a three-
year span. The Eagles won the
title in 1963 when they went
undefeated with a 6-0-3 record.
The Aggies, going into the
game, were in second place with
an identical conference record
of 5-1 but with an overall re

by the two state institutions in
1960 to promote good sports
manship between the schools.
NCC had two legs on the prize

sufficient to earn them the
CIAA title.
