Tigers look to finish spring season on a positive note in the Bayou Classic

This season has been opposite of everything the Tigers had originally expected.

Due to a COVID-19 outbreak within the team, the program was forced to shut down all football activities for the past two weeks.

“We currently still have virtual meetings each week about the game plan headed into the Bayou Classic,” graduate defensive lineman Cam Richardson told The Gramblinite. “This game is a rivalry, so we want to make sure we are prepared to the best of our ability and come out fundamentally sound.”

The G-Men have fought hard through adversity this season.

Despite the 0-3 start to the season, the Tigers very much could be sitting with a record of 2-1 if it were not for two heartbreaking fumbles at the end of the first two games.

The last two games of the regular season against Alabama A& M were cancelled due to positive Covid tests.

“This season has been a disappointing season to say the least and we know we can display better effort on our part,” Richardson said. “We have shown glimpses of our potential, but I think we just need to put it all together on the field and we will then be back to our winning ways.”

The G-Men look to put it all together as they face rival Southern University in the Bayou Classic in Shreveport on April 17.
