When Grambling State plays North Carolina Central in the Air Force Reserve Celebration Bowl next Saturday in Atlanta, the SWAC champions will be an overwhelming favorite.

This week, Grambling opens as a 15-point favorite over the Eagles, according to VegasInsider.com.

Grambling has won each game this season by an average of 19 points, though the Tigers only won the SWAC Championship 27-20 last Saturday over Alcorn State.

NCCU (9-2) has not lost a game against an FCS opponent since last October.  Grambling (10-1) has also not dropped a game to an FCS opponent in a calendar year.
