Last segment, I provided the highlights from the MEAC and now it’s time to represent the Southwestern Athletic Conference aka the SWAC as they too had a plethora of non-conference games as Southern was smacked by UT San Antonio 51 – 17 as quarterback Dalton Sturm racked up 292 yards and four scores, while Arkansas State blindsided Arkansas Pine Bluff 48 – 3 with 5 TD’s and 336 yards from quarterback Justice Hansen. Deep in the South in the state of Alabama, South Alabama SHUT OUT Alabama A&M 45 – 0 with TD’s from quarterback Dallas Davis, Alcorn State held on tight but fell to McNeese State 34 – 27 as the Braves quarterback Lenorris Footman, did his best to keep Alcorn in the game with 424 passing yards, ohhh weeee and not one, not two, but three TD’s. Meanwhile, Prairie View was ravished by Nicholls State 44 – 13 as running back Kyran Irvin notched 2 scores, while there was one lone SWAC game as Grambling overcame eight penalties to outlast Jackson State 36 -21 with quarterback Devante Kincaid racking up 255 yards and a score and finally, Kennesaw State used a balanced offensive attack and a strong defense with three interceptions to defeat Alabama State 20 – 14.
This sports segment is dedicated to all first responders, National Guard, civilians, neighbors, various organizations and many, many more who gave of their time, their donations, their prayers, their money, their blood and so much more to help those in dire need from the ill effects of Hurricane Irma in my home state of Florida….may God each bless you all.
