Jackson State seeking identity heading into TSU game
HOUSTON, Texas - Jackson State has passed the halfway point of the regular season, but coach Tony Hughes believes the Tigers still need to answer some big questions.
He said the team’s motto for this week is “who are we and where do we go from here.” The Tigers, Hughes believes, need to find their identity with five games left.
They play at Texas Southern at 2 p.m. Saturday at BBVA Compass Stadium.
“We played good against a fantastic team (in a 28-24 loss to Southern last Saturday),” Hughes said. “Maybe people realize we do have a good football team. Now, how do we put it all together and move forward? Who are we and where are we going?
“Those questions have to be answered pretty quick because Texas Southern is a really good football team. Coach (Michael) Haywood has got them going, and we’ve got to figure it out pretty quick because that’s going to be a tough, nasty, hostile environment for us.”
