Grambling vs. Prairie View A&M Prediction

I’m on Grambling here. The Panthers have some solid scoring depth, but the Panthers have some frailties on the defensive end that Grambling’s capable of exploiting. Grambling has the better defense and I just don’t know that Prairie View A&M can get it done here, even at home. Grambling’s shown an ability to win on the road in conference and I think they do so here as well. Give me the Tigers in this one.
