Grambling vs. Bethune-Cookman Prediction

I’m on Grambling here. The Tigers were the better team in the regular season in both meetings and statistically are the better team here as well. Both teams come in in fine form, but Grambling looks like the team to beat in the SWAC and I think they complete the trifecta over Bethune-Cookman and advance to the title game. Give me Grambling laying the points in this one.
