Grambling St. 38, Southern U. 17

Frank Warren rushed for 106 yards and three touchdowns as

Grambling defeated Southern 38-17 in Bayou Classic XXXVII on

Saturday at the Louisiana Superdome.

Warren, who carried 21 times and scored on runs of 1, 1 and 16

yards, became the second-leading rusher in Southwestern Athletic

Conference history.

The Tigers (9-1, 8-1) rebounded from a 41-34 overtime loss at

Texas Southern. The Jaguars (2-9, 1-8) lost their sixth consecutive

game.

Grambling, winning the Bayou Classic for the third consecutive

season, took a 19-18 edge in the Classic and evened the series

between the two schools at 29-29. It was the Tigers’ largest margin

of victory in the series since a 30-3 triumph in 1986.

The Tigers extended their 24-10 halftime lead to 31-10 when the

first possession of the second half ended with Warren running 16

yards for a touchdown.
