Grambling showed character in comeback win over TSU

GRAMBLING, Louisiana — Grambling's pristine 8-0 conference record hasn't come without challenges, but the Tigers met their stiffest one of the season over the weekend.

And Grambling's coach didn't say a word.

Down 28-7 in the first half, Grambling (8-1, 8-0) pulled out a gutsy win over Texas Southern with 40 unanswered points while holding Texas Southern scoreless to extend the Tigers' Southwestern Athletic Conference win streak to 17 games.

"I get excited when I see their character and their passion, whether it's practice or whether it's a game," Grambling coach Broderick Fobbs said Monday. "I didn't say anything. Our coaching staff addressed us being down 28-7. I didn't say anything. I just watched them."

Fobbs stood there silent. His players did all the work.
