The NCAA ruled that the cancelled game between Jackson State and Grambling State will go down in record books as "no contest". The Clarion-Ledger reported that since Grambling State did not show up for the game schedule on October 19th, it will not go down as a win or a loss for either school.

However, Jackson State will benefit somewhat from the controversial . The NCAA says the Southwestern Athletic Conference is allowed to give JSU a win and Grambling State a loss for conference standing purposes.

Clarion-Ledger reporter Ros Dumlao says Jackson State's overall record is listed as 6-2 while Grambling is 0-8.

Grambling players didn't show up for the team's bus ride to Jackson the Friday before their scheduled game with the Tigers. Players protested poor practice conditions and lack of support from the school.

The Grambling boycott ended Monday, October 21.
