State Fair Classic ... Unfortunately

The State Fair of Texas includes funnel cakes, the midway, the Texas star, BIG TEX and of course The Cotton Bowl. Annually, the Grambling Tigers and Prairie View Panthers make the trek to Dallas to play in the State Fair Classic. Although normally Grambling storms through the conference, this year, Prairie View was doing the storming while Grambling stumbled. For 22 Years Grambling handed the Panthers embarassing loss after embarassing loss, but not this year...or so we thought. Prairie View sported an undefeated record and the aura of a BCS Title Contender. With that said, the Panthers proved to be followers of the tradition (unfortunately). The Panthers struck first and lead early 9-0, but a Quarterback substitution and one Panther turnover (pick-six) proved to be all Grambling needed to change the scope of the game. Final Score: Grambling - 40. Prairie View - 16.

My favorite images from the game, sadly I didnt capture much action (on purpose).
