If the preseason predictions are correct, the SWAC Championship Game will be a repeat of the last two.
Defending champion Grambling State is expected to win the SWAC West, according to the conference’s predicted order of finish. GSU will be led by preseason Offensive Player of The Year Devante Kincade at quarterback and Martez Carter, a preseason All-SWAC selection at running back. Grambling finished 11-1 last season, winning the Celebration Bowl and clinching the Black College Football National Title.
Alcorn State is expected to win its fourth-straight SWAC East title, edging out Alabama State. ASU won the SWAC in 2014 and 15.
