GRAMBLING, La. | For the first time in school history, the Grambling State University football team will travel to Columbus, Ohio to take on Ohio State football on Sept. 6, 2025. It will also be the first time that GSU, an HBCU faces a member of the Big Ten Conference. 

The game features two of the most historic football brands in college football history. Grambling State boasts 27 Southwestern Athletic Conference (SWAC) Championships, 16 Black College (HBCU) National Titles and has produced four Pro Football Hall of Famers in Willie Brown, Buck Buchanan, Willie Davis and Charlie Joiner. The Tigers also cultivated Super Bowl XXII MVP Doug Williams, James “Shack” Harris and the first player to be drafted to the NFL, Paul “Tank” Younger. 

“This is another example of us being able to showcase our brand to a national audience,” said Vice President for Intercollegiate Athletics Dr. Travyean D. Scott. “We are thrilled that our players and fans will get to experience a matchup between two of the most storied football programs in the country. When you think of college football, Grambling State and Ohio State are two of the names that many think of immediately.  This contest will allow our both fan bases to experience the cultural and athletic excellence of both institutions.”

GSU is also known for legendary head football coach Eddie Robinson, who built the Grambling State University football program from the ground up, winning 408 games during his tenure. 

Ohio State football has won eight national titles, 42 Big Ten conference crowns, seven Heisman trophy winners, and has produced 10 Pro Football Hall of Famers.
