Grambling’s defense turned it up stopping UAPB four times on fourth down. UAPB was zero for two on red zone score opportunities in the first half.

The Golden Lions were 1-for-3 in red-zone chances. UAPB also went 1-for-6 in fourth-down conversions.

GSU’s Joshua Reed on the defense had 14 total tackles, eight solo stops, and 3.5 tackles for loss. Lewis Matthews also recorded 10 tackles, along with six solo stops and one sack.

Up next, Grambling State will travel down to Houston as the Tigers visit Texas Southern. Kickoff is set for 6 p.m. inside PNC Stadium and the game will be streamed live on ESPN+.
