Jackson St. parties on

 

Grambling’s decision not to travel to Jackson State for Saturday’s football game did not stop the homecoming festivities on the Mississippi campus. The music was blaring, the barbecue roasting and good times were all around outside of Mississippi Veterans Memorial Stadium on Saturday morning. It looked like a typical JSU homecoming celebration, complete with gorgeous 70-degree weather, a parade and – of course – a performance by the school’s popular marching band, the Sonic Boom of the South. The game between Grambling (0-8) and Jackson State (6-2) was canceled and declared a forfeit on Friday after disgruntled Grambling players refused to travel from their Louisiana campus because of issues they have with leaders of the athletic department and the university. – AP
