Who would have ever guessed that Thursday’s nationally televised game between Grambling and Texas Southern (on ESPN Classic and ESPN3) would be for all the marbles. The race for the SWAC West title is simple. If Grambling wins, the team will clinch a spot in the SCG. If Texas Southern wins, the team will need to win its final game against UAPB or have Grambling lose its final game against Southern to make its first-ever trip to Birmingham to compete for a SWAC championship.
