The Grambling Tigers represent Grambling State University in NCAA intercollegiate athletics.

Grambling's sports teams participate in NCAA Division I (I-AA for football) in the Southwestern Athletic Conference (SWAC).

Currently, the Grambling State University Department of Athletics sponsors Men's Intercollegiate football, along with men's and women's basketball, baseball, track & field, softball, golf, soccer, tennis, bowling and volleyball.



Grambling State plays its arch rival Southern University in the annual "Bayou Classic," which is hosted in New Orleans over Thanksgiving weekend at the Louisiana Superdome and broadcast nationally on NBC.

Former football coach Eddie Robinson held the NCAA record for most career wins as a head coach at the time of his retirement in 1997.

During Robinson’s stellar 57-year coaching career, the University gained a national reputation because of the large number of athletes who joined the professional ranks in football.

After Robinson’s retirement in 1997, former GSU standout and NFL Super Bowl XXII MVP Doug Williams took over the reins of the University's football program.

Grambling has won thirteen black college national championships, more than any other school in America (Robinson's teams won nine of those championships).
