NATCHITOCHES, La. -- Shelton Eppler threw for 263 yards and four touchdowns as Northwestern State romped past Grambling State 34-7 on Saturday night to give coach Brad Laird his first win.
The victory avenged the Demons 23-10 loss to Grambling last year. Grambling still holds a 3-2 edge in the series as the schools that are only 81 miles apart, met for just the fifth time.
The Demons bounced back from a 59-7 thumping by Texas A&M last week. Northwestern State opens Southland Conference play at Lamar next Saturday.
Aldon Clark led Grambling, throwing for 125 yards and running for 67 yards on 14 carries.
