Jackson State vs. Alabama A&M
Jackson State will be forced to play the role of spoiler after their black national title hopes ended last week at home against Grambling State.  A win by the Bulldogs, who have everything to play for, would punch their ticket (with some help) to the SWAC championship game. The Pick: Alabama A&M 28, Jackson State 27

Southern vs. Alabama State

Alabama State got their groove back a week ago. Southern hasn’t been able to find theirs all season. It would be hard to image the Jaguars pulling off the upset in this one. The Pick: Alabama State 31, Southern 17

Arkansas-Pine Bluff vs. Mississippi Valley State

Pine-Bluff hasn’t won a game since the postgame brawl against Southern that resulted in the team losing several key players the last two weeks.  The Delta Devils took a step back after their first win losing by 32 points to South Alabama.  The Pick: Arkansas-Pine Bluff 20, Mississippi Valley State 10

Prairie View A&M  vs. Alcorn State
The folks in Lorman want head coach Melvin Spears’ head on a purple and goal platter after a disappointing 2-6 start.  His prospects for a win this week doesn’t look good versus a Panthers team playing for a spot in Birmingham. The Pick: Prairie View 24, Alcorn 13

Texas Southern  vs. Grambling State

Grambling State got off their deathbed with four-straight wins to propel them in a tie for first-place in the SWAC Western Division.  Who would have thought that was possible a month ago?  The Pick: Grambling 23, Texas Southern 17
