Monday marked the official kick off for the 45th Annual Bayou Classic. As the city readies for the tens of thousands set to take part in the ultimate homecoming game of the year, Grambling President Richard Gallot, Jr. and Southern University President- Chancellor Ray Belton were joined by Mayor LaToya Cantrell and Gov. John Bel Edwards, as well as Grambling Coach Broderick Fobbs and Southern Coach Dawson Odums. Everyone is looking forward to the biggest year yet, as ticket sales by Monday, had already surpassed last year’s sales. If you haven’t gotten your tickets yet, get them today, and come support the game. Show your support for these two important HBCU’s. Of course, Data will be there!!!
