(STATS) - The Southwestern Athletic Conference has decided to keep the status quo by continuing a conference championship game this season.
The teams chasing Alcorn State and Grambling State for the right to play in that game will seek to change the status quo.
It won't be easy. The two powers have squared off in the last three championship games - Alcorn State actually has made four straight appearances - and SWAC preseason honors announced at media day Friday in Birmingham, Alabama, predicted even more success. They were runaway favorites to win the East (Alcorn) and West (Grambling) divisions again.
