Grambling avenges title game loss

GRAMBLING — Broderick Fobbs promised a Grambling team fueled by revenge; his defense delivered.

The Grambling defense – in a SWAC championship game rematch with Alcorn State – held the Braves to less than 200 yards for most of the game in a 43-18 win Saturday night.

Alcorn’s lone offensive touchdown came on the possession after a safety, when the Braves began the possession on the Grambling 42-yard line. Alcorn’s offensive possessions from that point forward ended with five punts, two lost fumbles, a turnover on downs, a safety and a made field goal.

The Tigers took a 16-8 lead into halftime and put the game away with 20 unanswered points to go up 36-11 early in the fourth quarter. Quarterback DeVante Kincaid had a hand in all three touchdowns of that stretch, throwing a 20-yard scoring strike to Verlan Hunter and running in a 6-yard score before a 67-yard completion with Chad Williams effectively sealed the game.
