NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) - Old Dominion University will announce Tuesday they have agreed to a two-game deal to play Norfolk State University in football starting in 2013.
Both teams are 2-0 this season. NSU won the MEAC Championship last year and ODU is not eligible to win the Colonial Athletic Association in 2012 because of the move to Conference USA. ODU and NSU had originally agreed to play for the next six years, until ODU moved to Conference USA.
Even though ODU's game against Hampton University was called early do to bad weather, ODU beat the Pirates 45-7 last Saturday. They have now scored more than 100 points in their first two games.
