Week 5 of college football continued to separate the contenders from pretenders. Alabama pounded Georgia on the road and TCU pounded Texas at home just to name a few. In SWAC play, Coach Brian Fobbs and the Grambling nation wanted to make a point to the Jackson State fan base that it wasn’t nothing personal two yaers agao when the Tigers didn’t show up for JSU Homecoming.

Alcorn State took a small vacation to Little Rock and when the horn sounded, it was like the Braves were on vacation in a 61-14 win over UAPB. QB John Gibbs passed for 103 yards and 2 scores. However, it was the ground game that did in the Lions. RB Joe Price and Darryan Ragsdale rushed for 273 yards combined and 2 tds to pace the Braves.
Coach Comengy took his troops on the road to test a tough Jacksonville Gamecoacks and it was a test that they failed miserably 49-0. JSU QB Eli Jenkins passed for 127 yards and 1td. RB Trumaine Pope and Josh Clemons rushed for nearly 200 yards and 3 scores to pace the JSU ground game. MVSU couldn’t manage hardly anything on the offensive end.
Coach Spady and his AAMU Bulldogs traved to South Carolina to take on Coastal Carolina and CCU made off like a fat rat 55-0 drubbing of the Bulldogs. CCU QB Alex Ross 153 yards passing and 4tds did in the Bulldogs. RB D’angelo Henderson’s 102 yards and 1td paced CCU ground game. The Bulldogs just couldn’t mustard up any thing offensively.
PVAMU used this weekend game against Faith University as a practice game in a 42-0 victory, as it prepares for MVSU for it’s homecoming this weekend. Coach Willie Simmons was able to mix things up a little as he could find quality back ups as well as play nearly everyone. QB Trey Green passed for 203 yards and 3 tds to pace the air game. WR Nick Pitre 120 yards and 2tds lead all pas catchers.
