Grambling 30, Jackson State 20: JSU coach Rick Comegy said beforehand that this was the biggest game of his career at JSU. Let's hope this isn't a preview of things to come, Rick. The Tigers can still make it to the SWAC Championship, though.

I went to the JSU game. They lost. I suerly hated to see them lose although I like Grambling too because of Eddie Robertson. Before the game the Class of 1967 football team at JSU were introduced. I got to see Harold Jackson, the ex JSU and NFL star and Rod Paige who was their coach back then and later Secretary of Education under Bush's first term.

Good win for USM. I forgot all about the game until the fourth quarter. That last drive for the TD was very crucial, considering that they had a 20-point lead going into halftime and almost gave it up.
