2017 Celebration Bowl: SWAC vs MEAC
As mentioned in the intro, The SWAC Football Championship pitted the Tigers of Grambling State facing off against the Braves of Alcorn State and this game was billed as The Final Judgement as this will be the last SWAC Championship Football Game played PERIOD. The SWAC announced back in June of this year that it will no longer have a championship game with the creation of the Air Force Reserve Celebration Bowl in Atlanta on December 16 and starting next year, the SWAC Football Champion will be determined by which school has the best regular season record.

QB Devante Kincade MVP
But nonetheless comma I digress as Grambling struck first early in the 1st quarter to begin the game at 7 - 0, but Alcorn said not so fast my friend and scored about five minutes later and at the end of the 1st, they were tied at 10 all and in the 2nd quarter, it was all Grambling State as they scored 28 consecutive points primarily behind their dynamic quarterback Devante Kincade, who finished the game with 223 passing yards and 2 TD’s and 75 rushing yards and again, 2 TD’s and he was also named the games Offensive MVP, but he eventually left the game due to a minor head injury and the Tigers would lead 38 – 10.

Broderick Fobbs
SWAC Coach of the Year
But the momentum shifted in the 4th as the Braves mounted a comeback and scored 22 points as they had the fans of GSU a little nervous, but Grambling held on for the win 40 – 32 as they capture the last game played for the SWAC Championship. During the postgame presser, I asked Grambling’s Head Coach Broderick Fobbs, who was awarded the SWAC Coach of the Year, my question and the coaches response is audio only.

With Grambling State winning their 2nd consecutive SWAC Championship, they will now travel to Atlanta to tangle with North Carolina A&T, the MEAC Champion, in the Celebration Bowl aka the HBCU Bowl on December 16.

The Bayou Classic 2017
The SWAC in Week 13 was the only major HBCU Football Conference that witnessed games on the gridiron yesterday as I kick it off with The Bayou Classic at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in the N. O. as Grambling matched up against Southern as they were competing to advance to the last SWAC Championship game to be held right here in the City of Houston on Saturday, December 2, but I digress as the game was close with less than five minutes remaining until Martez Carter ran it in from 11 yards for the score and he finished with 92 rushing yards and scored another TD on a catch and quarterback Devante Kincaide threw for 171 yards and the aforementioned TD and also ran it in for a score as Grambling knock off Southern 30 – 21 to move on to the SWAC Championship to face off against Alcorn State.

Niko Hollins passed for 3 TD's!!
The only other game on tap, which I covered at BBVA Compass Stadium, was a rescheduled game due to Hurricane Harvey as Texas Southern was trying wrap up their season in a positive manner against their in state rival in Prairie View. TSU would strike first with a field goal and after that, they were playing from behind the entire game as Prairie View, despite 17 penalties for 179 yards, used the arm of quarterback Neiko Hollins to pass for 319 yard and not one, not two, but three TD’s as PV went on to crush TSU 30 – 16 to claim bragging rights for the next year.

The SWAC was running and gunning with several games yesterday and unlike the MEAC, they have one more week to play, but I digress as Alabama A&M cruised past Kentucky State 21 – 13 with two scores from quarterback Dylan Smith, Alabama State got past Mississippi Valley State 16 – 10 as Hunter Hanson booted not one, not two, but three…wait for it…field goals! In the Battle of the Sip, Jackson State UPSET the SWAC East Division Champion Alcorn State in a blow out game 7 – 3, as Terrell Kennedy caught what ended up being the game winning TD and finally, Texas Southern befuddled Arkansas-Pine Bluff 24 – 10 with Brad Woodard running amuck for 128 yards and score.

The conference standings in the SWAC still have Grambling ruling the land overall and in the West at 7-0 and Southern at 5-1 and in the East, Alcorn State has a record of 6-2 and Alabama A&M at 3-3. As mentioned earlier, Alcorn State will be in the SWAC Championship game in December and they will play either Grambling or Southern, which they are due face off against one another next weekend.
