Bayou Classic 2021 Preview

It’s been a tough spring season for Grambling and only got worse last week against Arkansas-Pine Bluff. The Golden Lions handed the Tigers their most lopsided loss of the season, using a 28-point third quarter to come away with a 48-21 win.

Grambling has transitioned to quarterback Elijah Walker after Geremy Hickbottom started the year under center. Walker has seen scattered time in the three losses, passing for 267 yards and one touchdown pass.

“He basically understands now that it’s his show. He’s been given an opportunity to get out there and show what we can do for us,” Grambling head coach Broderick Fobbs said. “It’s going to be on us as a staff to put him in the right situations so he can be successful which, in my opinion, we haven’t.”

Southern has just one loss this season, which came against Arkansas-Pine Bluff back on March 6. The Jaguars are unscathed outside of that, their most recent victory a convincing 34-14 contest against Jackson State.

A well-balanced ground game has propelled Southern, led by dual-threat quarterback Ladarius Skelton. He’s passed 427 yards, three touchdowns and three interceptions to go with a team-high 241 yards on the ground.

The Jaguars have also tried out John Lampley under center as more of a passer. He’s compiled 63.3 percent of his passes for 382 yards, five touchdowns and three interceptions.

But with the Bayou Classic on tap, both teams are throwing out the records.

“Any time you get a chance to play the Bayou Classic, it has a lift of its own,” Fobbs said. “When you know the history and the stories behind all the games, and the people that have played in those games, regardless of where it’s played it’s huge for you.

“Other than being able to get home quicker, there isn’t really anything else. The game speaks for itself. The excitement to play or work in it is always positive.”

It’s the 47th edition of the rivalry matchup, with some different wrinkles. Obviously, the teams are not playing at a familiar time of year. On top of that, the game will be played at Shreveport’s Independence Stadium rather than the Mercedes Benz-Superdome.

“It’s still football. Unless we get there and the field is different, I think it’s still going to be 100 yards long,” Southern coach Dawson Odums said. “When I first got to Southern we played Prairie View in Shreveport. We have to adjust to it and be ready to compete at a high level. I think both teams are going to be ready to do that.”
