The SWAC Championship Game is a huge game for fans of teams playing in the Southwestern Athletic Conference.
Each season the two best teams in the conference go head-to-head for the right to call themselves champion of the conference,
and in 2013 those two teams will be the Southern Jaguars and the Jackson State Tigers. The Tigers finished the regular season
atop the SWAC's East Division Standings, earning them their berth into this game with an 8-3 overall record that included
a fantastic 8-1 mark in SWAC play. The Jaguars won the West Division of the SWAC with an 8-4 overall mark and a 7-2 record
in conference play. These two teams will take to the field on December 7th ready to give it everything they've got, because
this is the biggest game of the season for these players. This contest could be the most prolific contest that these student
athletes partake in throughout the entire careers in college athletics. That's why you're sure to see a level of effort in
this game that you don't get to witness on a weekly basis throughout the regular season in college football. Bear witness
to an incredible example of the competitive spirit when you head out to see this game at Reliant Stadium in Houston, TX. This
venue is one of the top football stadiums in the United States of America, and it is home to the Houston Texans of the National
Football League. If that's not a big enough stage for you, then nothing is. It's sure to be a fantastic time for all the fans
The Jackson State Tigers are ready to roar in this game. After winning all but
one of their conference games this season, the Tigers have earned the right to play for the Southwestern Athletic Conference
title, which was most definitely a goal set by this team before the 2013 college football season began. This team is filled
with talented players on both sides of the ball, and should have a good chance at taking home the trophy in this contest.
Don't sleep on the Jaguars from Southern University, though. If the Jags get the opportunity to pounce on a victory in this
game, they're not going to give it away. The Jaguars are hoping that their talented defensive unit can slow down the Tigers'
offensive assault, and if that's the case fans might just see the Jags hoist the hardware after the game.

that really gets the crowd going. College football fans carve out their entire Saturday to celebrate all that comes with the
game. These diehards are up early and off to the stadium parking lot for tailgating before the game. Once inside the stadium,
