QB Kincade has Grambling offense rolling

GRAMBLING, Louisiana — DeVante Kincade stood in the pocket like a statue. It was almost as if he was on display for the 15,000 or so fans in attendance at Eddie Robinson Stadium.

For almost three hours Saturday, Kincade with the help from a sturdy Grambling offensive line, picked apart a helpless Arkansas-Pine Bluff defense. He launched deep balls with precision. He provided the right amount of touch on his intermediate passes. He let his receivers do the rest on short screen passes.

The end result was a masterful 457-yard, six-touchdown effort to pace Grambling's 70-0 pasting of Arkansas-Pine Bluff on homecoming. The Ole Miss transfer completed 23 of 26 passes to help the Tigers (5-1, 5-0 Southwestern Athletic Conference) extend their conference win streak to 14 games.

"Very, very dominant. I don't know. That's about as perfect as you can get unless you're going to be picky and say 26 of 26," Grambling coach Broderick Fobbs said. "In three quarters, I don't know what else you want him to do. That's a flawless performance if you ask me."

Known as a tough grader, Fobbs' words are noteworthy.
