There’s been some instant jump starts for one of the nation’s most dangerous attacks, such as the 56-49 victory over Houston in the season opener, then followed by a 56-37 win against Rice.

in

The Tigers and Panthers are both 0-4 overall and 0-3 in the Southwestern Athletic Conference, where they share last place in the West Division.
“We’re both struggling right now,” said Grambling Head Coach Doug Williams. “This is definitely a must win game for both of us.”
