Southern ready for SWAC opener versus Prairie View
BATON ROUGE - Southern is the reigning SWAC Champs, but there not focusing any time on past achievements.
The Jags starting their road to a 2014 crown against the Panthers of Prairie View A&M. Southern and Prairie View, picked in the preseason to finish first and second in the SWAC West, have struggled some to start the season. The two teams combining for a 1-4 record, and still looking to establish an identity.
Southern pulled out a 62-59 double overtime thriller against Prairie View in their 2013 matchup, after trailing 35-13 in the 3rd quarter. The 2013 matchup was viewed as a turning point to the Jaguars season, as they eventually won the SWAC title. Southern hoping that a win this weekend could serve the same purpose.
Kickoff is set for 6 p.m. at Blackshears Stadium.
