Exclusive: A look back at Grambling's emotional victory

Posted: Updated:
Grambling, LA -

It came down to the final seconds, but Grambling State secured their first win of the season by beating Mississippi Valley State 47-40 at home.  It's been a long wait for the Grambling faithful, one that even included their team electing not to play in a game two weeks ago.  But all of that seems like a distant memory now, because for the first time, in a long time, their G-Men are winners.  Tears were flowing across the field as the Tigers celebrated the much needed win with their friends in family.  Multiple players told KTBS 3 that they felt Saturday's game was something Grambling fans will always remember.  Up next for the G-Men, a trip to New Orleans for the Bayou Classic against Southern.
