With the July 1 addition of Florida A&M and Bethune-Cookman making the Southwestern Athletic Conference a 12-team league and Alcorn State making the switch to the league’s West division, a heightened sense of anticipation is expectedly understandable.
Back in May, after the SWAC’s spring football championship game, HBCU Sports’ Kenn Rashad and Kendrick Marshall published their 2021 SWAC fall football predicted order of finish.
Below is how they see the season playing out.
|KENN RASHAD||KENDRICK MARSHALL|

|Alabama A&M||Florida A&M|
|Florida A&M||Jackson State|
|Jackson State||Alabama A&M|

|WEST DIVISION||WEST DIVISION|
|Arkansas-Pine Bluff||Alcorn State|
|Prairie View A&M||Prairie View A&M|

The SWAC’s football media day is slated to begin Tuesday at 10:00 a.m. (CST) at the Sheraton-Birmingham in Alabama.
