(AP) A Jackson State spokesman has announced that Saturday's game against Grambling has been cancelled.


JSU spokesman Wesley Peterson told The Associated Press Friday that Jackson State had been contacted by Grambling officials who informed them of the decision.


Disgruntled Grambling players had refused to travel to Mississippi. Grambling spokesman Will Sutton had said there would be "no forfeit" and that Grambling officials were trying to determine the next step.


Apparently, nothing could be worked out so that the game could be played.


Southwestern Athletic Conference Commissioner Duer Sharp said the situation was "very disappointing."
