ASU still plays Grambling after SWAC schedule switch

MONTGOMERY, Alabama -- Alabama State doesn't have to face the team that handed it its worst loss in 54 years this upcoming season.

That’s a byproduct the SWAC going back to playing seven conference games.

So the Hornets won’t play Southern, which has won its last four against them that includes a 64-6 demolishing last season, but must face the defending SWAC champions again.

The Hornets drew Grambling as well as Prairie View and Texas Southern as their three SWAC West crossover games for the 2017 season. ASU plays Grambling and Prairie View at home, but has lost its last two against the Tigers and its last three against the Panthers.

Alabama State also plays at Texas Southern, which also defeated ASU last season. So that means ASU won’t play Southern and Arkansas Pine Bluff, a team it has defeated four straight years.
