Alcorn State heading to Celebration Bowl

In past seasons, the SWAC Championship would mark the end of the season. But that's not the case for two-time defending conference champion Alcorn State. The 49-21 victory over Grambling punched Alcorn's ticket to Atlanta.

The Braves will play in the inaugural Celebration Bowl. It's a matchup pitting the SWAC champion versus the MEAC champion.

9-3 Alcorn State will face 9-2 North Carolina A&T in the Georgia Dome. Kickoff is Saturday, December 19th at 11:00am CT. The game will be televised on ABC.
