Struggling rivals seek redemption in Bayou Classic

NEW ORLEANS - With their hopes of a Southwestern Athletic Conference title gone for both Grambling and Southern, Saturday's nationally televised Bayou Classic in the Superdome gives both teams a chance to finish disappointing seasons in a big-game environment.

The teams enter the game with the worst combined record in the event's 39-year history. Southern is 3-7 and Grambling 1-9.

They're wrapping up a season that saw the Jaguars fire their coach after only two games, while Tigers coach Doug Williams has learned that even his status as a playing legend and successful coach in his previous stint on the job doesn't buy much patience from unhappy fans.

Southern will look to end a four-game losing streak in its meetings with Grambling, one that has seen the Tigers regain the series lead, 20-18.
