Southern, Grambling fans in for another exciting Bayou Classic weekend

 

For the 46th year, Southern University and Grambling State University fans and supporters are gearing up for another exciting year of the Bayou Classic. The annual weekend serves as a major recruitment and networking opportunity, showcase of student and alumni talent, and a matchup between two of the most well-known football programs in the nation. Comedian, actress and television host Sherryl Underwood will serve as this year's celebrity ambassador.

 

On Friday, Southern University senior Army ROTC cadets will carry the 46th Annual Bayou Classic game football 84.1 miles to the Mercedes Benz Superdome in New Orleans. The event holds a longstanding tradition, dating back to 1992. Cadets will begin the run at 5:45 a.m. at the F.G. Clark Activity Center on the Baton Rouge campus. The route goes through seven Southern Louisiana parishes: East Baton Rouge, Ascension, St. James, St. John the Baptist, St. Charles, Jefferson, and Orleans parishes. Cadets are expected to arrive at the Superdome by 3 p.m.
