SWAC spring football outlook

(STATS) - The SWAC has been filled with the haves and the have-nots in recent seasons, and the powers look to be in control again in 2017.

Alcorn State has represented the East Division in the last three SWAC championship games and captured two overall titles. Grambling State won the conference crown last season in its second straight appearance in the championship game, while Southern was the West representative in the prior two title games, winning one.

All three teams return their starting quarterback and other key veterans from successful teams. So while optimism reigns in the spring across the rest of the conference, will it be there in late fall?
