Jackson State 'ready' to play Grambling State

JACKSON, Mississippi -- Jackson State started the season with two potentially disheartening games, a 63-13 loss at UNLV and a 40-26 neutral-site loss to longtime rival Tennessee State.

But the Tigers said they have flushed those defeats from their minds.

“I feel like the losses leave like a sting of vengeance,” linebacker Kwame Bowens said. “As soon as the clock hits zero in those last two games, it just hit the whole team like, ‘OK, we’re not going for it anymore. We have to be ready to play our game, and it’s go-time.’

“We just feel like it’s ready to be that time right now.”

The Tigers (0-2, 0-0 SWAC) begin their conference and home schedule at 6 p.m. Saturday against Grambling State (0-1, 0-0), which is coming off a 31-21 loss to Arizona. Grambling State nearly pulled off the upset, leading 21-3 at halftime before allowing 28 unanswered points.
