The Grambling Tigers traveled to Dallas, TX to play Prairie View A&M in a game that usually is exciting for both teams every year. Grambling came in to Dallas and scored 36 unanswered points to take the 36-16 win over Prairie View last weekend at the State Fair Classic.
In the beginning of the game, Prairie View came out strong with a safety from Skinner at the second play from scrimmage to put Prairie View ahead by two points early on. The speed of Prairie View helped them in the first quarter as they scored two touchdowns to go ahead of Grambling 16-0.
From there it was all Grambling, and it definitely showed from the way they played. Kincade completed a pass to Williams at the end of the first quarter to give the Tigers their first sore of the night. In the second quarter Kincade ran in a score himself to cut the Prairie View lead to 2, and with 2 minutes left in the first half. Lorin Winston made a safety of his own to tie the game leading into halftime.
The Tigers scored the only points in the second half, with a dominating performance that included 31 first downs for the game, and 503 total yards. In the third quarter, there was a touchdown made by Jestin Kelly, who also made a score early in the forth quarter. The final score was made by Kincade when he ran in a 14 yard score with 3 minutes left.
Grambling did a good job of mixing the run and pass, and did a great job offensively, this was said by coach Fobbs of the second half performance. At this point in the beginning of October the Tigers stand at the top of the SWAC conference with a 3-0 record in the west for conference play. The Tigers do not play again until October 22nd, where they travel to Mississippi Valley State in another conference match up.
