Alcorn State ready for Bethune-Cookman in MEAC/SWAC Challenge

LORMAN, Mississippi -- Alcorn State is just 5 days away from playing in the national spotlight. I had a chance to watch the Braves work out this afternoon.

Fred McNair's crew are in the MEAC/SWAC Challenge. The matchup with Bethune-Cookman is dubbed the Battle by the Beach. Purple and gold are thrilled to have another chance on the national stage.

QB Lenorris Footman had a big 2015 as Alcorn won their 2nd straight SWAC championship. He said playing on ESPN is "very exciting. Growing up, you always want to see yourself playing on TV, let your family see you playing on TV. It's just a very humbling experience. All the glory goes to God."

Marquis Warford will play all over the field, the versatile RB/WR wants to make a statement. "Too excited that we get to go out there and show what we can do. Last time we wasn't about to show what we could actually show because we started off slow. But this is the year that we're going to be ready."
