ALCORN STATE AND SOUTHERN ARE PLAYING FOR A NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP !!!

Good morning, OK..Let’s get to it. It’s championship week and many conferences will be holding their championship football games to determine who is king in their kingdom. Well, here in Houston, two teams have their sights set on a trophy as well as a national championship trophy. Alcorn State Braves comes to Houston with a 9-3 record and a whole lot to prove . Lead by QB John Gibbs, a native Houstonian, the Braves look like the team to beat. Yes, coming off a LOSS to Jackson State in the Soul Bowl, the Braves look to put that behind them and focus on more important matters. Gibbs , has rushed for nearly a 1000 yards but has thrown for 2237 yards and 18 TD’s He is the man that makes the Braves go. RB Athony Williams and Darryl Ragsdale have rushed for 739 and 686 repectively. Aaronb Baker also has rushed for 682 YARDS to add to the ground game. WR Jordan Payne leads the air game with 24 catches for  450 yards. Charles Hughes has 22 catches for 364 yards. Defensivly, the Braves are lead by Devan Francois with 79 tackles. Damon Watkins and Will Thomas help solidify that defense with 73 and 51 tackes respectively. Southern University is coming off a huge win over the Grambling State Tigers 52-45 in a nail bitter for the ages in the Bayou Classic. The Jaguar defense stopped GSU QB Johnathan Williams just short of the goal line to preserve the win for the Jags and secure them a shot at defending their SWAC Crown. Southern is lead by Frosh QB Austin Howard as he has thrown for 2182 yards with 17 TD’S . QB Deonte Shorts has been a great back up as he has thrown for 504 yards and 2 TD’S. RB Leonard Tillary has rushed for 1209 yards to become the tird Jaguar to esclipse that feat of 1000 yard rusher sine 2003 when Kenneth Peoples went over. RB Tyre Bracken and Malcolm Crocket have done damage also..adding 447 and 291 to go along with 5 TD’s total. The Jaguar ground game is rolling. WR Willie Quinn has 56 catches for 833 yards and 5TD’s to lead the Jags air attack. Reggie Travis has 30 catches for 514 with 5td’s. Justin Morgan has 21 catches for 390 yards along with 3 TDS. The air game for the Jaguars is potent. Defensively, Demetrius Carter , Authur Miley , Roshaud Turner and Diote Mc Duffy lead a host of Jags with 94, 53, and 50 Tackles respectivley. The Jags rank high in the conference in all purpose defense. Now here comes the fun part. Can SU slow down John Gibbs and the Brave attack?. Can Alcorn slow down SU’s ground game along with WR Willie Quinn as he may be used in a various of multiple sets to get his hands on the ball.?  Judgement Day is near. Stay tuned……………realsportsrealtalk…..
