Bayou Classic still on football schedule despite cancellation of last two games

Grambling's most recently scheduled Southwestern Athletic Conference games against Alabama A&M March 27  and Texas Southern on April 3 were canceled last week.

The cancellation of the games and suspension of the season came after multiple positive Covid cases on the team.

“Grambling to suspend all football activities immediately,” Grambling State Athletics said on Facebook.

The team is still scheduled to take on Southern University on April 17 at Independence Stadium in Shreveport.

Grambling lost to Jackson State in the season and home opener on March 6. The game was NFL legend Deion Sanders second game as JSU’s head coach.

The Tigers lost that completion by five points.

In the second game of the season the G-Men fell to Prairie View A & M in the State Fair Classic in a heartbreaking 10-17 loss.

Both of those games were decided on last minute plays that could have seen the Tigers come out victorious.

Offensive coordinator Mark Orlando stepped down just prior to a 48-21 loss to the University of Arkansas – Pine Bluff.
