The SWAC issued this statement this afternoon concerning the postgame brawl between Southern and UAPB on Saturday night:
“The Southwestern Athletic Conference is currently reviewing Saturday’s postgame altercation between members of the Southern University and University of Arkansas-Pine Bluff football teams.
The SWAC Office is concerned and disappointed that the incident took place, and the league is working with administrative leadership at each school to gather as much information and video footage possible before levying any actions from the conference office.
Each chancellor, Dr. James L. Llorens at Southern and Dr. Lawrence A. Davis Jr. from UAPB, issued an official statement with apologies to alumni and fans and have pledged cooperation with the conference office from their respective institutsions.
No definite timeline has been set for a decision from the SWAC Office.”
