Grambling to play at Tulane in 2017

GRAMBLING, Louisiana — Grambling plays one football game a year in New Orleans for the annual Bayou Classic against Southern.

The Tigers will add another trip to the Big Easy on the 2017 schedule when they travel to Tulane for the 2017 season opener. The Advocate first reported the news Tuesday, and Grambling coach Broderick Fobbs confirmed the schedule addition after Wednesday's practice.

"It's big. It's important to play the other teams in the state of Louisiana because we're all family. We're all helping each other," Fobbs said. "When we go down to New Orleans it's going to be a booming place and it will be packed and that's good for Tulane but it's also good for us, too, because we recruiting that area also. I enjoy playing against teams in our area because it's almost like a family reunion of all the schools in the state of Louisiana."
