Grambling's 42-0 victory over Prairie View A&M in Dallas enabled Coach Eddie Robinson to achieve his 315th career coaching victory and move past Amos Alonzo Stagg into second place behind Paul (Bear) Bryant for second place on the all-time list. Bryant won 323.
"All my life I've believed that if you can do anything, you can do it in America," Robinson said. "You have a chance to equal what other people have (done). Other than that, I haven't blocked or tackled anybody. Others have done it for me."
