No place like home

Posted: Updated:
GRAMBLING, La. -

Grambling will open its season on Saturday against SWAC foe Alabama A&M.  The Tigers not only look forward to having the chance to erase the memories of last year's dismal 1-10 season, but are anxious to do so at home.

Grambling head coach Doug Williams on Monday talked about how his team opened last season in Shreveport where the Tigers played Alcorn State.  Williams added, as much as the team would like, he knows it can't play all 11 games at home, but starting there gives them a good chance to start the season well.
