Today is the Day that impacts the 2014 National Black College Football Championship!

Alcorn State University
Southern University
Baton Rouge,Louisiana

Today  two of the top 3 teams in my top 10  poll  are  playing for the SWAC championship !  The winner of this could also garner the 2014 HBCU national championship considering it is the last game of the season.

 Southern University (fresh off their record breaking 52-45 win over the 7th ranked Grambling State Tigers  in the 41st  annual "Bayou Classic") will face the Alcorn State Braves !

Both teams have 9 wins and 3 losses on the season, as a matter of fact one of the three losses suffered by the Jaguars is  a  56-16  thrashing at the hands of the Braves! But right now the the  Jags are in the midst of a seven game win streak !

The Jaguars of Southern will be lead by Freshman QB Austin Howard  and  1,000 yard rusher  Junior running back Lenard  Tillery  ( 194 carries for 1138 yards and 8 Tds). But the X factor for the Jags offense may be wide out  Willie Quinn who is  23rd in all of the FCS  in  "All - Purpose yards"

SU WR Willie Quinn 
 12  Games    833 receiving yds        203 Punt Return yds            629 Kick Return Yds          1656 total Yds 

Alcorn State on the other hand  has not played a game since finishing the regular season with a 34-31 loss to Jackson State  on November 22nd. Speaking of Jackson State  the Jags  manhandled the Tigers 42 -28  on October 25th. ASU  is lead by Junior  John Gibbs  Jr  who is  29th Among all FCS players this year in  "Total Offensive Yards".

ASU QB John Gibbs Jr

12 games 413 Plays  3,101 Yards 258.4  Avg yards per game 

 So today at  3pm Central , 4pm Eastern Standard time  its the  Toyota  SWAC championship  televised live from Houston, Texas  on ESPNU. Its is the Equivalent to the FBS  National championship for HBCU football as the Southern Jaguars clash with the Braves of Alcorn State for what could be the National Championship!
