The race for Houston and the 2017 SWAC Championship is nearing the finish line and this Saturday, SU Athletics needs the Jaguar Nation to "Standout Bold For Thee."
As Southern University football prepares to salute the 2017 Senior Class, the SU annual homecoming parade will commence a full day of festivities with a new route through the North Baton Rouge community.
Parade participants will access Elm Grove Garden Drive from Blount road prior to the start of the parade, which is scheduled to begin at 7:45 a.m. in front of Ryan Elementary. The parade will travel south down Elm Grove Garden Drive before making a right on Fairchild Drive. When the parade route reaches Scenic Highway, it will turn right and veer towards Scotland Avenue and will end at Scotlandville High School.
