STATS FCS predicts Grambling to win SWAC West

GRAMBLING, Louisiana -- At least one major publication believes Grambling will play for the Southwestern Athletic Conference championship in 2016.

STATS FCS, an online website that covers the Football Championship Subdivision, predicted Thursday that Grambling will repeat as the SWAC West Division champs over rival Southern and Prairie View A&M.

The predicted order of finish in the West varies from the preseason poll as voted on by SWAC coaches, which listed Prairie View as the favorite with Grambling finishing second.

STATS FCS and the SWAC coaches both agree Alcorn State is the team to beat in the East Division. The Braves are in of their third straight league title.

Grambling and Alcorn played for the 2015 title last December with the Braves coming away with a 49-21 win.
