Grambling takes show on road to 'second home'

SHREVEPORT, Louisiana — The Grambling football program is known for its traveling act that spans the globe, from the United States to Japan.

Whether 50 years ago under legendary coach Eddie Robinson or in the present day when the Tigers travel coast-to-coast to play nonconference games, Grambling relishes playing on the road.

This weekend is no different when Grambling plays its final "home game" on the road in Shreveport at Independence Stadium against Alabama State.

"We call Shreveport our second home. Grambling is our first home and Shreveport is our second home," Grambling coach Broderick Fobbs said. "There's a lot of great alumni that is looking forward for us coming over there, and we're looking forward to coming over there and giving them a show."

Grambling is putting on a show regardless of venue this year. The Tigers are 6-0 in the Southwestern Athletic Conference and need three wins to clinch a spot in the league title game for the second straight year.
