Alcorn State preps for SWAC Championship

LORMAN, Mississippi -- Alcorn State coach Fred McNair rested on his laurels during a family Thanksgiving at his mother Lucille’s home.

He ate some turkey, enjoyed his Braves’ victory over Jackson State and yes, he watched the Bayou Classic game between Southern University and Grambling State.

The Tigers stomped the Jaguars 52-30 to finish the regular season unbeaten in SWAC play for the second-straight season.

Or, as McNair said Tuesday, “Grambling gonna Grambling.”

The Braves (5-5) are all too familiar with the Tigers (10-1), who handed them a 43-18 whooping on Sept. 24. Quarterback DeVante Kincaid, an Ole Miss transfer, had a field day, throwing for 400 yards and five touchdowns and running for another score.

McNair and his Eastern Division champs hit the practice field Sunday to prepare for a second shot at the Tigers in the SWAC Championship, set for 2 p.m. Saturday in Houston.
