Grambling State University ravaged the Alabama A&M University Bulldogs this past Saturday at Eddie Robinson Stadium. The Tigers began to dominate their SWAC rivals in the beginning of the first quarter when QB Johnathan Williams made a 37 yard dash for the end zone in order to claim Grambling’s first of four touchdowns made in the first half. Following an exciting first quarter in which Verlon Hunter also claimed a touchdown for the Tigers, Grambling’s sophomore WR Chad Williams received a 23 yard touchdown pass from Johnathan Williams during the top of the second quarter. Maintaining the crowd’s interest with only 0:59 seconds left on the clock in the first half, senior WR Chester Rogers made a 63 yard punt return touchdown which gave the Tigers a 27-7 lead going into the second half of the match up. Within the third quarter, the Bulldogs made their second and final touchdown but it was quickly answered by QB Johnathan Williams 5 yard pass to Chester Rogers for another touchdown for Grambling State University. Finishing up their powerful role in a dominating matchup, Marc Orozco made Grambling’s last scoring play with his 22 yard field goal which secured the Tiger’s 37-14 victory. Keeping Grambling’s undefeated SWAC record in mind, the black and gold Tigers’ next Southwestern Athletic Conference battle against the Alcorn State University Braves next Saturday, October 17, is of no concern. Making a conscious effort to continue on this trending path, Coach Broderick Fobbs and his team will be traveling to Jack Spinks Stadium in Alcorn State, MS. Making it clear that this past weekend’s game wasn’t a challenge for the Tigers, let’s all hope that ASU is half as “brave” as they present themselves to be.
