The Alcorn State Braves haven't done anything right up to this point and aren't covering numbers either. While it's still a small sample size for the most part, Alcorn State isn't a team I'm looking to back in any shape or form. The Grambling Tigers have at the very least shown promise on the defensive side of the ball and that's more than we can say for Alcorn State. I'll lay the chalk with Grambling if forced to pick this contest.
