With the 50th Bayou Classic approaching, this game is an important turning point for both teams. For Grambling, winning this Bayou Classic would serve as a turning point for the program and head coach Hue Jackson after two underwhelming seasons in the SWAC. For Southern, not only would a win here assure our lead in the classic all-time (which sits at 25-24), but it would give the program something to build on as we seek new leadership.
Going into the game, both teams are 5-5 and 4-3 in the conference.
