Top Sports Rivalries of All Time
Grambling State Tigers vs Southern Jaguars
SWAC schools don t often get to play at the Superdome or have a game broadcast on network television, but the annual showdown between Southern and Grambling gets special treatment, partly because it s been so tight 20 wins for Grambling and 21 for Southern. College football legend Eddie Robinson and Super Bowl MVP Doug Williams also helped infuse extra-special intrigue in the Bayou Classic. Williams final game as the Tigers head coach was the best in this rivalry that dates back to 1974. Thanks to five touchdowns and 552 yards passing from Jaguars quarterback Quincy Richard, Southern held on to a narrow lead and an 11-1 season and ultimately the Black College National Championship. And the annual halftime show, the Battle of the Bands, renders this game one of the most special rivalries in college football.
