BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - Southern’s homecoming game against Alabama A&M is not what you’d call a “must-win” scenario for the Jags (4-4, 3-1 SWAC).
However, most Jaguar fans would rather not see their team slip into a tie with Grambling and Arkansas-Pine Bluff going into Thanksgiving weekend and the Bayou Classic at the end of this month.
Alabama A&M’s bid to overtake Alcorn State in the east appears to rely on winning Saturday, so the Bulldogs (5-3, 2-1 SWAC) could approach this matchup as a “must-win.”
Kickoff is scheduled for 4 p.m.
