'Lights out': Grambling pastes Pine Bluff to extend SWAC streak

GRAMBLING — Grambling's offense is playing at such an elite level that the Tigers shut down the power on campus earlier this week.

Well, it depends on whom you ask.

It happened last Monday, the players said. Saturday was a figurative repeat occurrence.

The Tigers' potent offense was participating in pass skel, a football term for 7-on-7 drills, and was so effective that the players, led by quarterback DeVante Kincade and wide receiver Chad Williams, started yelling 'We're lights out!' as campus went dark.

"That's what we do. We're so lights out we cut the whole lights off around campus," Williams said.

Grambling (5-1, 5-0 Southwestern Athletic Conference) turned the lights out on Arkansas-Pine Bluff in what coach Broderick Fobbs described as the most impressive victory he's seen in his 18-year coaching career. The Tigers pasted Pine-Bluff, 70-0, on homecoming at Eddie Robinson Stadium to extend their conference win streak to 14 games.
