The NCAA is recognizing the canceled game between Grambling State and Jackson State on Oct. 19 as a no contest, not with a win and a loss.

Grambling State’s players refused to travel to the game during a six-day player walkout. The Southwestern Athletic Conference then declared the game a forfeit.

The SWAC is allowed to give Jackson State a win and Grambling State a loss in its conference standings, but it can’t count the game toward the teams’ overall records.

The NCAA recognizes Jackson State as 6-2 overall and Grambling State as 0-8 overall.
