Grambling has eyes set on running SWAC table again

GRAMBLING, Louisiana -- Grambling's place as one of the top teams in the Southwestern Athletic Conference was cemented with last Saturday's convincing victory over two-time defending SWAC champions Alcorn State.

What was more impressive, though, was the win marked Grambling's 11th consecutive league victory dating back almost two years ago. It's only two games into the SWAC schedule, but the Tigers have no intention of ending the streak.

"We feel like we shouldn't lose any game in the SWAC and that these guys want to continue this streak and we want to leave a legacy behind at Grambling," said Eric Rhodes, who is the defensive quality control coach at Grambling.

"This is something you want to remember not losing a game or having this winning streak in conference games and also coming out with a ring. We want to end up in Atlanta. It's one game at a time, each SWAC game at a time."
