Topics: Southern, Grambling, Bayou Classic

It's almost here. The most talked about game all year on Southern's schedule is just moments away.

Both teams are on the field warming up. Southern is wearing white jerseys and pants and their traditional blue helmets. Grambling is wearing black jerseys, helmets and pants.

The Superdome has been transformed from the Saints to the State Farm Bayou Classic, with banners along each side with one endzone panted with Southern and the other Grambling. The Tigers are the home team and will use the Saints bench.

With no championship birth on the line, the game is all about the rivalry. It's the first time since 2006 that a trip to the SWAC Championship game has not been a destination for either club.

Last year, Grambling defeated Southern 29-14. The Jags will want revenge and year full year of bragging rights.
