The Grambling State Tigers finished the 2016 regular season with vengeance….Looking to make amends for last season debacle against the defending champs Alcorn State Braves, the G-Men’s game plan was to smash the gas early and often. However, Coach Fred McNair almost pulled a rabbit out his hat. The Braves looked like the championship team early on as the moved the ball up and down the field against the number one defense in the SWAC. QB Lenooris Footman , Norlando Veals and Delance Turner were a three headed  combination as the Braves raced out to a  17-0 lead at the break. I really mean , they looked like the dominant team while the Tigers looked defeated in more ways then one.

However as they always say, there are two halves to a football game and the second half seemed to be the one that the G-Men realized we must win. Grambling looked like the team of old as they played with more passion and broke the drought out scoring the Braves 27-3 in second half and hang on to defeat the Braves 27-20. QB DeVante Kincade passes for 237 yards and 2 touchdowns. WR Chad Williams caught 6 balls for 103 yards but no scores. RB Martez Carter rushed for 136 yards and 1 Touchdown.  

Alcorn had a chance to break open the game in the first half as converted TE Michael Ajumobi dropped two would be touchdowns. The Braves were paced by Lenoois Footman’s 259 yards passing. RB Delance Turner’s 126 yards rushing was tops for the Braves.
