SWAC FOOTBALL: BIG CAT CLASSIC SHOWDOWN UPON US….

Good morning my good people. It’s been a very busy week for myself as well as for NCAA football. Well , lets get right to it…..In the SWAC, as expected Jackson State and Southern are on a collision course this weekend as they tangle in Baton Rouge for a key SWAC showdown. Both the Tigers and Jaguars are 2-0 in Conference play and the trash talking has began. Lasy year, the surprising Jaguars upset the Tigers in Jackson 28-21 as Dawson Odums got his first win as interium coach. The Jags went on to beat Florida A&M as well as Texas Southern and Grambling to finish second in the West. The Tigers on the other hand went on to win a few more games to advance to the SWAC championship game however, lose to the UAPB Lions. This game is bittersweet for both programs. The rilvary goes back for nearly 30 plus years as the attendance for this game can be considered a classic by both parties. In Jackson alone, numbers estimate 50k or higher and in Baton Rouge, the numbers could be 30k or higher. Folks from all over come to see the bands and the football teams battle on and off the field. Rick Comengy’s Tigers are lead by QB CLAYTON MOORE and DB QUA COX. JSU is coming off a win over Texas Southern however, the Blue Bengals alumni are not happy. The lost to Tennesse State still stings them. This could be a make or break it game for Comengy as he is considered to be on the hot seat even though he lead the Tigers back to Birmingham. The Tigers must continue to run the ball and aggreeesively force turnovers on defense. The Southern Jaguars seem to have found themselves at the right time. After being scored nearly 120 points to 26 , the Jags put up 62 in a win over PVAMU. The defense however, gave up 56 in the win though. A grinded out win on the raod at MVSU told another story. QB DRAY JOSEPH AND WR LEE DOSS seemed to be clicking on all the right cylinders as they have been in high gear the last 2 games. Joseph has thrown for nearly 600 yards and 8TDS and Doss leads the conference in recieving with over 500 yards and 5TDS. This matchup means alot to both schools as well as fans alike. Southern’s homefield advantage could be the deciding factor. A.W. Mumford holds only 25K but with the Jaguar Nation rocking, it could be more like 40k and a long night for the fans from Jackson. Get your tickets now, cause, it’s about to go down. ……realsportsrealtalk!!!
