Even after knocking off SWAC East leader Alcorn State to stay undefeated in conference play, Grambling State has no room for a let down.
Grambling’s 28-21 win over No. 24 Alcorn State was the school’s biggest win since the 2011 SWAC championship game.
While the meteoric rise from worse to first has been one of the more remarkable stories in the FCS this season, head coach Broderick Fobbs understands the team still has much yet to accomplish.
“We still haven’t done anything,” Fobbs said Monday. “We’ve been fortunate to win some football games. It’s a matter of doing what you’re supposed to do. We don’t try to get too far ahead of ourselves. We try to make the most of the moment.”
Next up for Grambling is a date with last place Arkansas Pine-Bluff – an opponent that figures not be a challenge on paper although Fobbs remains wary.
“You tend to think that they may not play as well, but they’re a very good football team and they’ve been in several of those games that they lost,” Fobbs said. “That’s why I mentioned it as being a possible trap game especially when you haven’t been in this position before where we’re in a position now where a lot of people are chasing us and we’re used to chasing people in the last couple years.”
