The Grambling University has had a long and historic football program.

Eddie Robinson was the longtime coach there and sent several players to the National Football League: Buck Buchanan, Gary “Big Hands” Johnson, Doug Williams, Paul “Tank” Younger, Willie Brown, Willie Davis, James Harris, Charlie Joiner and Everson Walls.

All of those former players must be shaking their heads about what is happening at one of the top historically black colleges in the United States.

There is turmoil brewing between the football team and the school’s administration over several issues like traveling to away games on busses, a football stadium that needs repairs and the firing of football coaches.

This season alone, the Tigers have had three head coaches. Doug Williams was fired after two games, George Ragsdale was replaced last Thursday by Dennis “Dirt’ Winston.

Grambling officials met this past weekend in an effort to solve problems with the football players and to avoid any more game forfeits.

The officials included university president Frank Pogue, athletic director Aaron James and Winston.

On Saturday, the football players refused to travel to play at Jackson State and thus forfeited the game.

Grambling is planning to play this coming Saturday’s game at home against Texas Southern. The game is very important to the university because its their annual High School Day, which draws in many prospective students from around the Louisiana region.

They also ended another losing streak of 28 straight losses to Football Subdivision teams.

Akron’s Jawon Chrisholm rushed for 86 yards and three touchdowns to fuel the win.

The Zips took control in the second half by pulling ahead 24-7.

Akron had not won on the road since a 45-35 win against Eastern Michigan on October 18, 2008. They also had not won at Miami since October 21, 1939. The Zips last beat an FBS team on November 28, 2010, against the Buffalo Bulls.

The Zips are now 2-6, 1-3 in the Mid-American Conference.

The Miami RedHawks are 0-7, 0-3 with their only bright spot being QB Austin Boucher who completed 23 of 34 passes for 226 yards and two touchdowns.

Terrance Owens threw a 20-yard touchdown pass and Jeremiah Detmer kicked the conversion to give the host Toledo the win over Navy on Saturday, 45-44 in 2 overtimes.

The Rockets other star of the game was David Fluellen finished with 154 rushing yards on 19 attempts before leaving the game for good early in the fourth quarter after being on a hard hit.

Navy’s Nick Sloan sent the game in overtime after converting on a 40-yard field goal on the final play of regulation.

Toledo’s winning play came after Navy’s Geoffrey Whiteside scored on a 9-yard touchdown to give the Midshipmen a 44-38 lead. But Sloan missed the extra point paving the way for the Rockets to win the game.

Toledo improves to 4-3. Navy drops to 3-3.

The Connecticut Huskies traveled to Cincinnati Saturday looking for their first win of the season.

But like most teams, UConn found out it is tough to win at UC’s Nippert Stadium.

The Bearcats made it tough all day for the Huskies who are now 0-6, 0-2 in the new American Athletic Conference.

The loss also ruined the homecoming of UConn interim head coach T.J. Weist, who was an assistant coach for the Bearcats the past three seasons under Butch Jones who left to become the head man at Tennessee.

Weist took over after the fourth game this season when Paul Pasqualoni was fired.

Cincinnati QB Brendon Kay keeps getting better each game. He has played a “best”  game each time out this season. Saturday afternoon, he tied a career high in touchdown passes with four while completing 17 of 24 passes for 300 yards. Kay also rushed for a touchdown for 5-2, 2-1 Cincinnati.

Every year at the Ohio Athletic Conference football media day, Mount Union is the usual pick.

That’s not surprising since they’ve won the league for the past 21 years.

They’ll keep being favored until somebody knocks them off.

On Saturday at Capital’s Bernlohr Stadium in Bexley, Ohio, the juggernaut continued some impressive records in winning 58-3.

The Purple Raiders have won 21 games in a row; 79 consecutive regular-season wins and their 113th regular season road win.

Mt. Union is now 6-0, 5-0 on the season.

Capital drops to a disappointing 1-5, 1-4.

Ranked number 1, the Purple Raiders forced six turnovers and held the Crusaders to 144 total yards and minus-5 passing.
