There's no line out yet and this game is way too early to wait for a line to update with a pick. So, instead of waiting for a line, I'm going to side with the Grambling St Tigers in this contest. Grambling State is far more battle tested for this contest with several road games against good teams and came close to a win yesterday in a overtime contest. Savannah State continues to struggle defensively.
Give me Grambling St Tigers to win this contest.
