Road-tested Grambling begins stretch run

GRAMBLING, Louisiana — The home stretch is here for Grambling.

Sporting a 14-game win streak inside Southwestern Athletic Conference play, Grambling has four regular season games left in its quest to win a conference championship.

All four come away from home with two road games and a pair of neutral site games in Shreveport and New Orleans.

“We've played well on the road since we've been here at Grambling State University. I don't think this week is any different,” Grambling coach Broderick Fobbs. “You want to play flawless every week. That's the dream, that's the goal to do so.”

Grambling (5-1) is on the road this weekend at Alabama A&M to preserve its unblemished 5-0 mark in the SWAC.

The Tigers, who are coming off a 70-0 win over Arkansas-Pine Bluff, face their fourth SWAC East Division opponent this season.

Grambling is 10-5 on the road during the past three years under Fobbs, including a 6-2 mark since 2015. The lone loss this year came at Arizona in a game Grambling led 21-3 at halftime.
