It’s been that kind of season for the Grambling State Tigers.
What looked to be a close game on paper was anything but in reality as Prairie View A&M topped the Tigers 31-3 Saturday before a crowd of 27,745 in Southwestern Athletic Conference action at the Cotton Bowl in Dallas.
The numbers in the stat books were definitely deceiving in this one.
Grambling, now 0-6 overall and 0-3 in the SWAC, actually outgained Prairie View with 329 total yards, edging past the Panthers’ 327. GSU held the ball 31:55 compared to 28:05 for Prairie View.

The teams will play a doubleheader beginning at noon Saturday with the finale set for 1 p.m. Sunday. GSU stands at 4-18 overball and 2-6 in the SWAC while Southern is 3-15 and 1-5. The two teams met earlier this season with Southern winning 6-1 at the MLB Urban Classic in New Orleans.
Funeral services wee held Tuesday in Rayville for Stacey Hill Miller, a former walk-on player and manager for the Louisiana Tech University Lady Techsters’ basketball team.
Miller, 37, passed away on Monday following a lengthy battle against colon cancer.
A graduate of Mangham High School, Miller earned All-State honors in basketball before signing to play for Panola Junior College. She later transferred to the Lady Techsters’ program, where she made the team as a walk-on and was a member of the 1995 and 1996 teams before later serving as a manager.
