Jackson State Tigers will square off against the Texas Southern Tigers at Veterans Memorial Stadium in Jackson, Mississippi under clear skies and 52 degrees weather. The JSU team will be without head coach Deion Sanders for a third-consecutive game. Interim coach Gary Harrell will lead the Jackson State team on the afternoon.
If JSU wins versus TSU and FAMU loses to Southern, then the Tigers would win the SWAC East division.
Dynamic wide receiver Warren Newman will miss the game.
