Grambling aims to upset Southern in Bayou Classic
NEW ORLEANS - Grambling State interim coach Dennis "Dirt" Winston praises his players for "making history" with their walkout last month in protest of the conditions under which they've been forced to train, travel and play this season.
Now Winston and the Tigers aim for an upset of historical proportions on Saturday when they meet arch rival Southern in the Bayou Classic.
The Jaguars have already won the SWAC Western Division, meaning they'll be headed to Houston for the league title game regardless of how they hold up against a Grambling squad which has managed only one victory all season.
But Odums isn't about the look past one of the fiercest rivalry games in college football. He says if Southern loses this game, "nothing else matters."
