5 SWAC teams with the most to prove in 2016

JACKSON, Mississippi -- Each team enters the college football season with something to prove in some form or fashion.

This rings true in the SWAC as well.

Five teams stick out above the rest, though, and The Clarion-Ledger will take a look at those teams with the most to prove this fall.

Let's start with a team that didn't make the list.

Honorable mention

Alcorn State: Yes, in theory, a back-to-back conference conference champion shouldn't have much to prove. The Braves, which went 9-4 in 2015, lost the architect of their recent success in January when Jay Hopson left to become the coach at Southern Miss. So it will be up to new Alcorn State coach Fred McNair to prove he and the remaining coaches can keep the program's momentum going.
