N.C. Central will finish its spring football practice today at 1 p.m. with its annual Maroon vs. Gray scrimmage at O’Kelly-Riddick Stadium.

The Eagles, who will play their last season this fall before being fully eligible for NCAA Division I championship competition, have finished 4-7 in each of their last two seasons under Mose Rison.

NCCU lost only five key seniors off last season’s club, which won four of its last five games.

Festivities begin at 10 a.m. inside “E-Town,” the promotional facility next to the stadium, with children’s games and music.

The Eagles will open their season Sept. 2 against former CIAA rival Johnson C. Smith in the first of NCCU’s six home games.
