GSU football slated to take on Alabama A&M

The Grambling State University football team will gear up to face-off with Southwestern Athletic Conference (SWAC) East rival Alabama A&M on Saturday, Nov. 10.

Kick-off from Louis Crews Stadium is set for 2 p.m.

The game will be broadcast on the Grambling State Sports Radio Network. The game can be heard in Ruston (KPCH 99.3 FM) and in Monroe (KJMG 97.3 FM). The Tigers broadcast crew of Santoria Black, Ossie Clark, Nick Harrison and Leon Thomas, will call all of the action.

Grambling State (5-4 Overall, 4-2 SWAC), concluded home play last Saturday with a 24-19 win over Mississippi Valley State for their Homecoming and Senior Day.

The Tigers also finished with a 4-0 home record, while maintaining a 13-game winning streak at Eddie G. Robinson Stadium.

Last week, Geremy Hickbottom went 12 of 24 passing for 208 yards and three touchdowns.

Alabama A&M (5-4, 4-2) is number two in the SWAC East and enters the weekend off a 45-14 win over Arkansas-Pine Bluff.

The Bulldogs racked up 26 first downs and 618 total yards of offense against the Golden Lions.

This will be the 25th meeting between Grambling and Alabama A&M.

Grambling leads the series, 18-6, and has won the last two meetings (2014 and 2016).

• Saturday’s game against the Bulldogs is a non-conference game.
• The most points GSU scored in the series was 56 in 2016, while Alabama A&M scored 38 points in 2012.
• As weird as it may have seemed, Grambling is in prime position for a SWAC West Division Championship.
• Coming into last weekend’s tilt with Mississippi  Valley State, the Tigers squad needs to win out and would control its own destiny.
• However, with Prairie View A&M’s loss to Jackson State, the 2018 SWAC West Division title will officially be decided at the Bayou Classic with rival Southern.
• Winner of the Bayou Classic will represent the West in the SWAC Championship.
