HATTIESBURG, Miss. — A 50-yard field goal by Danny Hrapmann with 2:32 left in the game gave the University of Southern Mississippi a 19-17 victory over Louisiana Tech University in the 2011 season opener at M.M. Roberts Stadium here Saturday night.

Tigers take 21-14 win in ‘Port City Classic’
9-2.jpg

SHREVEPORT — A young Grambling State offense grew up on the field Saturday as the Tigers overcame early jitters to take a 21-14 season opening win in the Port City Classic played at Independence Stadium.
Freshman quarterback D.J. Williams connected on a pair of touchdowns and threw for 161 yards with no interceptions to lead his father’s team to victory on a rainy field. Wind and rain from squall lines coming from Tropical Storm Lee in the Gulf of Mexico made throwing conditions tough, but D.J. Williams stayed cool facing a fierce Alcorn State pass rush.

Town eyes restrictions

GRAMBLING — Thanks in part to a large number of complaints, safety concerns and a July 23 shooting incident, the Town of Grambling is looking to put a cap on Bottle/BYOB clubs operating within town limits through a series of restrictions.
During the August meeting, the town council moved to introduce an ordinance that would amend the regular hours of operation at the Bottle/BYOB clubs within the municipal limits.
After a heated public hearing regarding the hour change, the council voted to approve the amendment in a unanimous vote at their Sept. 1 meeting. The change will mean Bottle/BYOB clubs will have to close an hour earlier — at 1 a.m. instead of 2.
