'Plan' is for GSU to play at Solider Field in 2017

GRAMBLING, Louiana -- Grambling is on the verge of taking its traveling show on the road to Chicago's historic Soldier Field.

Grambling recently scheduled a nonconference game with Clark Atlanta University for Sept. 30, and Grambling coach Broderick Fobbs said Wednesday night the "plan" is to play the game at the home of the Chicago Bears.

"It's not finalized. That's why it's to be announced," Fobbs said. "Worst case scenario if we're unable to get that worked out then of course we'll play that game in Atlanta at a neutral sit which is just as good for us because the city of Atlanta is big for us in recruiting.

Grambling finalized its full 11-game schedule over the weekend. Clark Atlanta, a Division II HBCU program from Georgia, was the latest and final addition to the slate.

Instead of playing a non-Division I team at home like the Tigers have done in the past, Grambling was able to hit a big market.
