GRAMBLING, La. (KTAL/KMSS) – The Tigers are coming off a 43-14 win over Arkansas Pine-Bluff, their first conference road game victory since 2019.
Despite the win, head coach Hue Jackson said his team has not played a full game yet.
“I think the offense kind of steadied themselves,” Jackson said. “I think Myles did a good job, took care of the football, we didn’t have any turnovers, obviously we were able to throw some touchdowns, run some balls into the endzone. So I think that was important for the confidence of our offensive football team to get back to where we were.”
The G-Men will take advantage of their bye week before facing off against Southern University in Week 13.
Being .500 on the season, GSU needs to earn a victory in their final game to finish with a winning record.
“At the end of the day, we need to go win the classic,” Jackson said. “We need to go, this is our biggest rival, we get it. I know what it’s like now, having participated in it a year ago. It’s something that you want to win and you need to win. So our football team, our coach staff, this is a big big game for us.”
