Online - UPDATE: Jackson State confirms that there will be no game between JSU and Grambling State tomorrow afternoon.

CBS Sports is reporting Grambling players have decided not to play Jackson State this weekend, according to a report on ESPN.Com.
This will result in a forfeit.

However, Grambling President Frank Pogue and a Jackson State spokesman both said that the game will be played.

If Grambling does not play, it will be another act of protest from the team. Earlier this week, it was reported that the Grambling team walked out of a meeting with the school president after becoming frustrated. Pogue fired Head Coach Doug Williams two weeks into the season, and Defensive Line Coach Ezil Bibbs several weeks later.

After walking out of the meeting, the players did not show up for practice on Wednesday. Thursday night, the school fired interim Coach Doug Ragsdale.
