GRAMBLING, La. - The defending Southwestern Athletic Conference (SWAC) Football Champions,

The Grambling State Tigers program looks forward to another successful year. The G-MEN              

finished the 2017 season 11-2 as well as SWAC champions, before moving on to the HBCU

Championship where they fell victim 21-14 against NC A&T. Head coach Broderick Fobbs enters his

5th year under the helms with a (38-11) record.  However, the departure of key offensive players quarterback

Devante Kincade and running back Martez Carter has the Tiger’s looking to retool offensively and defensively. Even with the entire secondary

defensively lost,  the defense may become the core of the Tigers success. Returning a brutal defensive line and linebacker core lead by    

Preseason All-American LB De’Arius Christmas and All SWAC DL La’Allan Clark. The offensive

side of the ball that ranks 25th in FCS with 31.2 points per game, returns its top wide receiver as well as four out of the five starting offensive line. The Tigers kick off their season with their first

ever meeting September 1 at Louisiana-Lafayette followed by a meeting on ESPN3 September

22nd with Alabama State. The Tigers then leave Louisiana soil as they take on Alcorn State

October 20th on ESPN3/ESPNU.
