SHREVEPORT, Louisiana -- Although some might claim the fame, there aren’t many bands in the land that can match the Grambling State University marching band.
Best band in the land? Hard to argue with them when it comes to entertainment value. While most bands simply perform at halftime, the Tiger band celebrates with their fans, bringing them to their feet with pom-poms waving.
But the thing is, the Grambling football team, built into household name under the late great Eddie Robinson, is showing it can continue to hold its own as a SWAC power under coach Broderick Fobbs and continues to expand fame of its own.
After dispatching Alabama State 21-0 Saturday afternoon at Independence Stadium in somewhat subdued fashion, the Tigers (7-1, 7-0 SWAC) now boast a 16-game SWAC win streak that dates back a couple of years when these same Hornets (3-7, 3-6) won 45-32 in Robinson Stadium.
